“Right Here Waiting” – performed by Richard Marx

Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn’t stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can’t get near you now

Oh, can’t you see it baby
You’ve got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I’m with you
I’ll take the chance

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
Waiting for you

 “Right Here Waiting” was written and performed by Richard Marx. The song takes the perspective of an individual who has lost a partner or a special friend. When people realize that their loved one is truly dead, there is always that quick flashback that happens where they remember all the missed opportunities that they didn’t pursue when their loved one was still alive.

So when they visit the funeral homes to pay tribute to the deceased, it is always often very difficult to accept the loss because they are still trying to figure out the “what if’s” of their relationship.

The song also reiterates the faith that the living person has on the relationship with the deceased individual. There will still be faith that will keep their two souls together even if they are being separated by death.

There will be a lot of times where you will question life just like the line, “I wonder how we can survive”. But love will always come through. You will frequently be looking forward to the next time that you will be seeing each other again, even in the afterlife.
