Welcome Home

written by: Kelli J Gavin

You got up to leave
I sat down to show you I would stay
You can’t leave
I am not sure I should stay

We have been here before
More times than I care to admit
You pretending
Me perfecting

I am not doing this anymore
You can’t make me
You come and you go
I watch you - always in motion

It is time
Grow up
Figure it out
Figure you out

I won’t be waiting
I won’t sit still
I won’t be welcoming
I won’t, I tell you

Welcome Home
Sit down for a while
I’ve missed you
Let’s try again
