Remember Me?

I'm the little girl whose heart you broke

Remember Me?
Forgive and love can grow

Remember me?

I’m the little girl

Whose arm you broke

The one you kicked

The one you tried to choke

I’m the little girl

Whose back you lashed

The one you hate d

The one you called trash

Remember me?

I’m the little girl

Who was broken in two

One side filled with rage

The other still loved you

I’m the little girl

Who ran away

To walk the streets at night

To beg for dimes all day

Remember me?

I am the one

Who chose to understand

You were once a victim

Of someone else’s hand

I am the woman

Who chose to forgive

So, you could forgive yourself

And I could learn to live

Remember me.

Remember me.
