He comforts her, he feels his emotions flowing. He's there, but unsure.

She cried in his arms. The tears came out in a storm. The noise of the world around them vanished. He wished he could help her, but it was beyond his power to do so. He could only comfort her now. The storm quieted as the long wails turned to sobs then whimpers. She lay there now in a deep sleep as he sit there beside her, the whole world coming back into view, rearing its head back into sight. He sat there, helpless, as she, the storm, silently drifted away.
She shifted in her sleep, resting her head on his lap. She looked so fragile and helpless compared to her strong persona. Once again he felt an overwhelming sense to put her at ease. To take away all her problems. He could still hear the sniffling from the crying that had ensued earlier. 
The bus screached to a halt. He nudged her awake. She seemed fine now, tired, but not upset. She seemed to completely lock away her feelings. He wondered how she could do that, for he couldn't stop thinking about how to help her. Maybe it was his own stupidity, trying to fix things out of his control. He couldn't let go of problems so easily.

Beautiful and heartfelt. Your prose is very poetic and I liked the image of a fading storm as a metaphor for their relationship but now that she seems calm he is unsure whether their lives together will stay that way. Great job!
