i think you're in the minority here, which is why it's configured like it is. most people want it to go away after they send, because they're done with the keyboard at that point.
i haven't seen a setting to keep it from doing that. i suspect it can be written though. go put a request in in the application section
If you need help, try IRC #Cyanogenmod in freenode.net
Someone may be able to help you there. I will try, if I'm on.
