Mental Mentor (For Nigel Moir)

You taught me to love the rain,

to know the night, and my place

in it, to still feel significant

when the stars – might suggest otherwise.

You taught me to love the rain,

to goad the storm into a fight,

place myself in the eye of it,

magnificent, a hurricane heart never dies.

You taught me, you taught me

how to use the pain.

You taught me to love the rain,

you taught me to love the rain.
