Songs on Saturday~ Oceans Apart

true love is as boundless and free as the ocean

Richard Marx, from the album Repeat Offender, which I bought in 1989 ~ jeez…..

This seems to have been written for my current romantic situation.  In fact RM wrote this for his wife to be Cynthia, when they were really separated by oceanic distances.  Allegedly this song was churned out in 20 minutes.

  1. A heart-rending, powerful song – so beautiful, it resonates in a such deep, almost archaic, remembered way….💕

    1. So many loving couples are separated by distance, circumstance, time, money, and sometimes just bad luck. All I know is that I will always do the very best I can for those I care for, no matter how far apart we may be. ❤

      1. ‘Tis true … 4,000 miles or so! You’re a good man, Jack … you’ll find somebody when you least expect it. Or better yet … stop looking … let her find you! Hugs! ❤

          If it's supposed to happen, then she will find me.
