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.
