A Walk to Remember_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Looking at Valentine’s Day through the lens of a lifetime Forget your dancing shoes.
Remember your walking stick.

Romance is a dance of passion
choreographed by the capricious emotions
of desire.

But lasting love is a daily walk
where the talk of commitment
makes steady progress
toward the destination of a lifetime.

It’s an adventure trek into tomorrow
where the surprises you encounter
beyond the bend
are both a shared and priceless prize.

It’s a hike on a mountain path
that encompasses breathtaking vistas,
valleys of disappointment
and fog-shrouded plateaus
where companionship
doubles your joy
and divides your sorrow.

It’s a slow-motion shuffle
when, as an elderly couple,
you hold hands
(having held true to your word)
and whisper to each other,
“After all these years I still do!”

It’s a lonely stroll
down a quiet corridor
that leads you to a certain room
where one connected to monitors and tubes
still recognizes your voice
and smiles as you ask
“Will you be my valentine?”

Don't settle for the fleeting dance of romance.
Make your relationship a walk to remember.

What a talent and way with words Greg Asimakoupoulos has and what a blessing to have him on your staff. A Walk to Remember says it all...My hat's off to The Partial Observer and to the writer...I wish that every married couple would read this...Divorce is too easy these days ...we all have good and bad times...Couples need to remember the love that brought them together and the vows they swore before God...Thank you for this meaningful poem...It's great!

After 27 years of marriage with lots of ups and downs... A Walk to Remember is a wonderful reminder of the lifetime commitment we make to each other. I pray more couples could be reminded of this. Thanks Greg for once again sharing what's in our hearts and on our minds.

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
