Here you will find the Poem Is There A Bitter Pang For Love Removed of poet Thomas Hood
Is there a bitter pang for love removed, O God! The dead love doth not cost more tears Than the alive, the loving, the beloved? Not yet, not yet beyond all hopes and fears! Would I were laid Under the shade Of the calm grave, and the long grass of years,? That love might die with sorrow:?I am sorrow; And she, that loves me tenderest, doth press Most poison from my cruel lips, and borrow Only new anguish from the old caress; Oh, this world's grief Hath no relief In being wrung from a great happiness. Would I had never filled thine eyes with love, For love is only tears: would I had never Breathed such a curse-like blessing as we prove; Now, if 'Farewell' could bless thee, I would sever! Would I were laid Under the shade Of the cold tomb, and the long grass forever!
