The 'creator of sorrow' is the Mohokare or Caldeon River, the river that separates Lesotho from South Africa and during apartheid, a country where people were free to live where they liked from a country where they were treated as 'Blacks', and suffered accordingly. The sorrow might even simply be that someone dearly loved lived permanently on the other side. As a result, this is rather a sad, but very moving song.
