THEME: Someone who feels proud


Here is my entry:


WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE? (WC 154)

By Michelle S. Kennedy


Who will be your Valentine?

I need to know…

Will YOU be MINE?!


I am proud, I must confess.

I won’t nag—

(so just say YES.)


Who will be your Valentine?

I need to know…

Will YOU be MINE?!

I am proud (at least in school.)

I won’t plead—

(‘cuz that’s not cool.)


Who will be your Valentine?

I need to know…

Will YOU be MINE?!


I am proud, but I’ll admit

I won’t beg—

(but I might quit!)

Who will be your Valentine?

I need to know…

Will YOU be MINE?!


I am proud, (but now unsure).

I won’t lie—

(I’m insecure.)

Who will be your Valentine?

I need to know…

Will YOU be MINE?!


I am proud, so one last time,

I will ask—

Will YOU be MINE?!


Who will be your Valentine?

I guess not me…

I’ll let you be.


Oh?

You’ll BE my Valentine?

(BIG RELIEF)

I’m on cloud nine!
