Grief is a terribly painful experience. It seems to be beyond description through words. However, the Lord surely expressed grief in its fullest in Matthew 23:37-39
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Surely grief is experienced in many ways, yet what can be more heart shattering than to see the house of the Lord left desolate by her own devices?
