When most people think of October third,

They think about the famous mean girls quote.

The one when she says, 'It's October third'.

I however, think of something more remote.

I think of you when I laid in your arm,

I always tried to forestall saying bye.

I wanted to save you from any harm.

And never wished for you to cry.

I think of how difficult your life was,

You always had to put up a bulwark,

Living through the war without a pause.

But always finding enough time to work.

You loved me and I will always love you.

That is the quiddity of love that's true.
