Not the usual sonnet

This sonnet is a tribute to someone who was very important to me.

in the form of an elegy

You never knew the value that you had
for me -- I never had the chance to tell
you what I felt and thought, how truly glad
my soul would be when it had chance to dwell
inside of yours, those endless moments when
we were connected beyond words and there
our harmonies became a single ken
and twice accordant with naught else but bare
awareness -- and now I wish my words
of explanation could be heard by you,
so you could grasp how vivid mem'ry girds
my future visions -- yet 'tis sadly true
that you have gone beyond my furthest reach,
are lost though even God I would beseech.
