My First Poem to My First Grandchild

I'm imagining, wee Imogen,
how you will touch our lives
with images of how much we are loved
by a Father we have never seen
who demonstrates His care
through daily mercies we're most needful of.

Precious Imogen, your Papou
is ecstatic with delight
as I contemplate the moments we will share.
Those dimples that define your face
remind me of your mom
who grew up way too fast with years to spare.

And so I pledge, granddaughter dear,
to cherish every day
the Lord allows me to be here with you.
I want to be a means of grace
by which your faith will grow
before my days on earth are finally through.

*Little Imogen was born to my daughter and her husband on January 8, 2017 (Epiphany Sunday)

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
