Separately, out of the office, we made our way.
It was sad and lonely, how I thought it ended, this day.
Walked slowly to wait for you; it was a relief seeing people pile up.
Caught each other on the lobby waiting for the elevator to pick us up.
The far-side elevator arrow lit up telling us it will be next.
I stopped on the middle aisle, wanting to be concave to the door you’ll get out of, not convex.
You made it in the crowd, stood there silently and waited patiently.
Patiently waiting for the elevator to rise up and let itself be ridden, kindly.
The far-side elevator finally decided to open its doors.
I didn’t want to get in; just stood there, glued myself to the floor.
I wanted an excuse not to get in so I just let it fill up with people.
Just like how said I wanted to change fate, very simple, but it was a good example.
Your side elevator arrow lit itself up telling us that it’ll be the next one.
The thought of being next to you when we get in, sounded like a lot of fun.
I just so missed you the entire day, I needed something to look forward to.
Even if it’ll just be a quick elevator time; even just for a minute or two.
The elevator finally got to our floor and gave off its sound.
A sudden rush of people, on my way to you, that was where they were found.
I wasn’t able to get in! It made me sad; wanted to grab you out of there.
I want you in my arms; want you with me; just want us to be together.
I waited for the next one, wishing I’d be able to catch a glimpse of you somehow.
It was taking too long, another way down, I was thinking about, right now.
It finally came to me, got myself in and made my way down.
It was taking its time, though. The wait was making me frown.
I finally got off, rushed out of the building, hoping to see your pretty face.
I didn’t have time for anything else. It was as if I was in a race.
I was looking left and right trying to catch a glimpse of you.
Not getting what I was hoping for made me feel so blue.
I had one last chance to catch you, to the jeepney stop where you take your ride, I went to.
When I see you, in that ride, I might even get myself into.
A ride just passed by me, I looked inside but found no sign of you.
Thinking about looking at the next one but that ride that passed me, I stuck to.
As it was about to pass by, I maxed out my eyesight to, just in case, be able to see you.
Then it did, I took a look and, as God wanted it, there was you!
You gave me a “hi” or “goodbye” but what you said really didn’t matter that time.
All I remember is that when I saw you, I knew that everything’s going to be just fine.
I’ve been missing you all day and I’m still missing you so bad.
I know the day will come that I’ll be with you and I’ll be more than glad.
I’m so longing for that day to come; the day where I finally get to be with you.
But for now I’ll be waiting, just like waiting to ride in the elevator with you.
