The spirit floated above the sand
Whispering the name of a forgotten man
One who had beaten her with his hand

She spent her life forgetting
The name of the forgotten man
But never forgiving
How he beat her with his hand

Since the age of five, she took the abuse
From the forgotten man
Never fighting back, what was the use

Loveless she laid in bed each night
Terrified with a great fright
Of the forgotten man

The love she never received
From the forgotten man
Is what she dearly grieved

For her father, the forgotten man
Never bothered to love her with his hand
