I Cannot Be There

When you come to love someone,
you come to care a lot.
You’re happy when you’re together,
and saddened when you’re not.
It’s just the same as I feel,
without my brother at home.
It leaves me in such despair
to know he feels alone.
I wish there were a way for me
to tell him that I care.
But as it is, I am aching
to know I cannot be there.
