Jesus wept

tears upon hearing
breath expiring
Lazarus passing
family grieving
tears amidst jeering
leaders conspiring
disciples asking
crowds unbelieving
tears from heaven
unbidden unleavened
convergence crucified
grievance glorified
tears from human
cosmic catechumen
consummating earth 
unbelievable birth
tears to loosen
calcified clay
petrified passion
cemented compassion
tears to wash
frozen fears
swallowed shame
wasted years
tears that open
barren wombs
buried blame
sealed tombs
tears that unearth
emotional insurrection
transcendent transformation
unimaginable resurrection
