A Trip Across The Sea – MUGANA DUNAMIS

couple by the sea

I plead for life not death
I plead my sins forgiven
I plead my soul be kept
As I kiss tonight for tomorrow’s goodbye
I plead for hope rekindled

The hut that bore my youth
In which lives the harvest of fruits
I bid you farewell
The sea beckons
I must go

Tell not mama neither papa
Their pains will know no bound
I fear for Agu’s fragile heart
His only heir gone
But I must go

Tell not the stitch that holds my heart
That my lips she will never know not it’s taste

Tell Aisha not to wait for me
Blossom and marry, become fruitful
Know my heart still beats for you
But alas our tale shall fade with time
Therefore I must go

Dream not of my gaze on the starry sky
Or lying by your side at the break of dawn
My vision is blurred as the hill-top fog
Though my heart bleeds, I must go

Kola wait not for me
Nor wait for your share of the hunt
The bushes will yet be at ease
My hands lay no traps
Yonder I must go

Tell not my face the rains won’t kiss
Or sit at night for the winds’ tale
Or yam by the fire roast to eat
Less my heart be weary
For I must go

My soul tell me I must return
To see and feel these warmth again
To relay the songs of papa’s fields
Not to drown before I reach those shores
Nor die in the white man’s land

They tell me the sky is clearer over there
They tell me there is a glimpse of hope
But you tell me to some day return
Tell me I must come home
