To Me Your Name Is Almost Holy (Free Verse Sonnet)

(for Annelize)

To me your name is almost holy
as if it has a very deep meaning,
are deeper than the decades that did pass without you,
deeper than the time when we were together
where days and nights between things did get meaning
and the depth of that, which is between us,
of that which could come and be
I want to explore with you and make it still deeper
as without you too much of my life has already passed
and I do know that love is much more
than only a bodily pleasurable thing
where you had trod very deep tracks into my soul and spirit
but I want to discover you anew again
and on all levels learn to love and know you thoroughly.
