I Can't Help You

I can't fix this.
I just can't.
You turned to me,
seeking help I can't give.

I'm sorry.
I can't help you.
You're asking me things
I don't know myself.

I can't help you.
But I can give you comfort.
You might just need
A shoulder to cry on.

I'm here for you.
But that's all I can do.
You know I don't know,
What you're going through.
