Emily Dickinson

10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts

If all the griefs I am to have

If all the griefs I am to have
Would only come today,
I am so happy I believe
They'd laugh and run away.

If all the joys I am to have
Would only come today,
They could not be so big as this
That happens to me now.
