Jesus Wept

Remember Lazurus –

his family were good friends

and followers of Jesus.

But Lazarus died

and his friends

and sisters cried.

Though Jesus knew

the goodbye was temporary

because of what He would do.

Could they accept

the relief from grief

He could give? Lazarus would live.

But first, Jesus wept.

Remember, my friend,

when the time comes for goodbyes

and we reach the end

it’s okay to cry

so don’t stop the tears

don’t even try.

You may know

it’s only temporary

but for now, let the tears flow

and someday accept

the relief from grief

He can give. We will live.

But remember, first Jesus wept.
