I wrote this song many years ago shortly after having a miscarriage. The day of the loss, Jonah and I drove out to Lucy Vincent and sat on a rock, watching and listening to the waves come in. While the ocean couldn’t explain for us why, or what for, we did find its presence comforting.
The Infinite is my Beloved,
this ocean is my reminder.
And I’ve walked this shore restless,
near a thousand times,
my head full of measurements, my soul divided.
The green waves that rush in and back again,
wind in the dune grass, million grains of sand,
crickets at dusk, stars in the night sky,
all call me back to my love.
They sing, “You are not the sum of your suffering,
you are not all that you have done.
you are not even the thoughts that you think.
You and we are one.”
When I bring my sadness to the sea,
and I look to the horizon.
From where I stand to eternity,
everything’s so beautiful.
