Valentine's is More Than a Day

It's a way of life

Valentine's is More Than a Day

A Valentine is not a day.
It's the little things by which I say
how much I love that certain one
who claims my grateful heart.

A Valentine lasts through the year.
It promises that I'll be here
to shield you from the winter chill
as we are growing old.

A Valentine is not a card.
It's loving you when things are hard.
It's showing you through what I do
that we will never part.

A Valentine's a way of life.
When we are stressed by unsolved strife,
I'll look for ways to rid our home
of that which steals our joy.

A Valentine's is simply me
who's humbled by the chance to be
your escort as we journey through
the days that yet await.

*This poem is dedicated to my wife Wendy

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
