Whats The Point?

You stayed
for a while
I tried
to make you smile
You were here
but they were there
It killed you
and they knew
You wanted to leave
to go home
but she said no
so you stayed.
Now you're leaving
Barely even a goodbye
But you need to go
To be happy
To be with them
To finally be Home.

Though i dont fully understand what happened, i really like it! :) I guess part of poetry is trying to understand what the writer is feeling and knowing what the poem makes us feel.
