'to yearn'

Hello :)

I was looking for a place where someone could chase away my doubts concerning the use of the verb 'yearn', and I just stumbled upon this community.

Anyway, my problem is if 'yearn' can be followed by 'that someone does something'. Like here:

I can’t express know how much I yearn, with every single atom of my bricks, that you acknowledge my presence and let me comfort you.

It looks ok for me, but I'm not a native speaker of English, so... I just wanted someone to confirm it. Or not. ;)

Thank you in advance :)
