Fresh Start

In lieu of my cooking escapades this week, I’ve decided to share with you something I’ve found recently – one of Umi’s poems. That’s right, my mother is a poet and has several of them…somewhere around here. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

At a time when your world’s

Full of hurt and pain

When you think it’s all over

With nothing to gain


Step back, take a look

And I can but guess

You’re a person I feel

Who’s truly been blessed


The pain, it will go

All fond memories will stay

Your faith will grow stronger

Just live day to day


So keep your head high

Keep love in your heart

With each brand new day

Just make a fresh start
