My Daughter's Now a Mother

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: May 14, 2017

Contemplating a first Mother's Day…

My daughter's now a mother
with a daughter of her own.
The one I carried cradles one she loves.
Last Mother's Day we first would learn 
that Ally was with-child.
Amazing news as if from God above.

A baby is a miracle.
The one that you conceive
as well as those conceived by those you've birthed.
Miraculous. Breathtaking.
Tiny replicas of grace.
They are Heaven's richest blessings here on earth.

This Mother's Day I thank the Lord
for wonders to behold.
My beautiful granddaughter with her mom.
The way my wife just beams with pride
to see our progeny.
A pieta of comfort, peace and calm.
