My words fall short, or so it seems sometimes

Trying and Failing For A Family Member
 
 
My words ring hollow in the moment,
Well short of anything comforting,
 
Wisdom is elusive, well beyond me
I keep searching for the well-turned phrase
 
That lifts you up and gives you hope,
But the more I try, the weaker my words sound
 
Rise to the moment? I think not
