My Lover Satisfies

I will drink deeply of the milk of heaven
          and I will be fed.

I will drink deeply of the water of life
          and I will be satisfied.

I will drink deeply of my Lover’s sweet wine
          and I will know peace and contentment.

Nourishment, satisfaction, and more –
          peace, contentment, and more –

Fulfillment: full to overflowing
Joy: sweetness pure and ineffable
Rest: beside the waters of pleasure

My Lover satisfies my every need.
