Why this was happening to her, she couldn't understand.
She never thought that against her he would ever raise a hand.
She just couldn't believe...not the one she loved ever so deeply,
Couldn't he see that he was scarring his child's memory.
What was so complicated that he couldn't realize,
Couldn't he see the pain in his little girl's eyes.
The memory of daddy hitting mommy, she will never forget.
Will her daddy ever this incident regret.
She stands in the doorway as her mother falls to the floor.
A tear rolls down her cheek as daddy hits her once more.
Children this young should not have to see this violence.
Why must they ignore their cries, why can't they break this silence.
A child may not remember much when they were young,
But they will always remember the times when daddy hit mommy.
