Poems in English

If grief for grief can touch thee

If grief for grief can touch thee

If grief for grief can touch thee,
If answering woe for woe,
If any truth can melt thee
Come to me now!

I cannot be more lonely,
More drear I cannot be!
My worn heart beats so wildly
‘Twill break for thee

And when the world despises
When Heaven repels my prayer
Will not mine angel comfort?
Mine idol hear?

Yes, by the tears I’m poured,
By all my hours of pain
O I shall surely win thee,
Beloved, again!



Poem If grief for grief can touch thee - Emily Bronte
