After The Rain

from 21st Century Hymns by Kimwei



k: mother, on the island you grew up was there a rainy season?

m: When it rained it poured my love and I couldn't see a thing.
Do you know the rain can wet you through? It can wash you away

k: On the island I grew up, a drizzle wears away the stones.
Mother when you caught that plane, did the downpour stay behind?

m: My dear, the rain can stick to you. I never could get dry.

k: Mother there is history that I never could escape just by
shaking out my shoes after the rain.
