Only a Year Apart

May 3, 2011
He's in grade eleven, I'm in grade ten
He is the creme de la creme
He gives me hugs again and again
Oh! Comment j'espere qu'il m'aime

Can you believe I overspend
My time thinking about him
If he found out I'd be ashamed
And wouldn't be able to explain

I'm pretty sure he doesn't feel the same
So my heart needs to be contained
But if it's my heart he wants to claim
I won't be the one to complain

I love how you made this fit into three easy-to-read stanzas. Your rhyme scheme makes it flow better than it would if it didn't rhyme a little bit. My favorite line is "So my heart needs to be contained" :)
