I don't want to say goodbye,
To the only place I've ever know,
I don't want to say farewell,
To the only place Id call my home.

There are to many memories,
I don't want to leave,
Of laugher and happiness,
Even tears and grief.

I don't want to forget the footsteps,
Which echoed down the halls,
The finger prints mother hated
Which traced upon the walls.

The nightmares and the dreams,
I had in my bed,
All the creative thoughts,
Which would flow through my head.

But moving from here,
Shall take this all away,
Just grant me one thing,
Please tell me I can stay.
