Jesus Wept

...There are some griefs so loud
They could bring down the sky,
And there are griefs so still
None knows how deep they lie,
Endured, never expended.
There are old griefs so proud
They never speak a word;
They never can be mended. --May Sarton, “Of Grief,” Selected Poems of May Sarton (New York: W.W. Norton and Co., 1978), p. 77.

Jesus wept. --The Gospel According to John, Chapter 9.

"Jesus Wept" That is one of my favorite verses in the entire Bible. It runs so contrary to much of what is in the world.
