'continue' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'stay with mother during lull' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'mother' could be 'ma' (ma can mean mother) and 'ma' is found within the answer.
'during' could be 'in' (e.g. during February means in February) and 'in' is present in the answer.
The remaining letters 're' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).

'to' acts as a link.
