    as eternally you are my Garden,
    l am your four rivers..
    my heart stretches out to you more than the Nile--
    long
    and wide..
    your ground yields fruit of my strength and pride
    and
    each season l shall reap your harvests--
    even
    in the cold
    and dry

    yes. you
    are
    my queen

    l am your four rivers, meaning
    strength.
    growth.
    protection.
    comfort.
    l am here from every direction
    let me be the sources of life you seek..
    taste of my tongue
    the pleasant creek
    as each time l speak it shall be your drink of life

    if again you shall thirst
    allow me to go to the brook for clarity--
    l shall seek God and see Him first
    and then return to you my love, verily.

    for you are my Garden my ground to toil
    tend and keep
    into this soil l must sow and reap
    just as you will
    (for they who sow and reap are one)
    my Garden
    from my heart comes your rain and sun
