Featured Writing - Stay
I’m gonna have to say,
I want you to stay.
And I know you probably don’t want to,
But I realize now all I want is you.
So if you could just take a seat,
I promise I will never cheat,
I promise I will never lie,
As long as you don't say goodbye.
And I know I've done you wrong,
But please, just stay strong
I really don't want you to leave,
But I understand you have dreams you want to achieve.
So I guess I will say goodbye.
And without me, I know you will fly.
