Please Stay

Stay.

I am enjoying the moment spending time with you. The conversation. The laughter. the camaraderie as we sit around the table. Words flow back and forth without any pause for breath. A topic is spent and we move onto the next with ease and no thought.

Please stay.

It is not often we get to spend time together. To share experiences. To share thoughts and ideas. To share what is happening in our day-to-day lives. It is with interest that we listen to your tales; and with relief that you are managing to stay within the boundaries that we have taught you.

Stay.

Just a little while longer. So I can enjoy the moment of our family being together. So that I can savour the unity of us, all together, for this moment in time. So that we have a little more to hold in our memories when we lay our heads on our pillows tonight.

Please stay.

  1. Love it. I’m tempted to take part, because the topic is so very relevant to me at the moment, but I’m worried it might be a bit like emotional blackmail, to try and get my daughter not to move to Canada…

    1. It is important too that you express your feelings too. I know that my dad did – vocally – for many years until he accepted that I had made the decision to stay here.

  2. And then, all too quickly, it is over and they have gone. Scattered to the four winds and left nothing but lovely memories until next time! I also wish the family would stay longer when they visit!
    Enjoyed this post a lot 🙂
