You so far away and in pain

Me sitting here in a piercing rain

For I want to help but you are too far

It’s like trying to get to the farthest star

It’s so beautiful you can’t resist

But you know it’s easily missed

And as much as I want to help, my hands are tied

Inside, I feel as if I have died

Cause you mean so much to me

And my heart won’t let it be

I need this rain to stop so the sun can shine

And I can see your smile in these eyes of mine

But all I can do is hope and pray

I get to see your smile again someday

I have been wondering the same thing. I guess all that you can really do is keep letting that person know that you love them and you will always be there for them no matter where you are.
