Through the back window of our '59 wagon
I watched my best friend Jamie slipping further away
I kept on waving till I couldn't see her
And through my tears, I asked again why we couldn't stay
Mama whispered softly, "Time will ease your pain"
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same"
And she said, 'How can I help you to say goodbye
It's okay to hurt and it's okay to cry
