If you did it by heart then take the next three or four words and do the same. Now read both parts (6 or 8 word)looking at them with pointing your finger three times and then do it by heart 3 times. Add the next three or four words and read three to seven times and do that third part by heart and then read all three parts of words and then do them by heart and complete the verse. In this way you can complete the verse. The same pattern you will do with verses once you memorized them.
