When You Thought I Wasnít Looking

 

When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,

                 and I wanted to paint another one.


When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I saw you feed a stray cat,

                 and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.

 

When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I saw you make my favorite cake just for me,

                 and I knew that little things are special things.

 

When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I heard you say a prayer,

                  and I believed this is a God I could always talk to.

 

When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I felt you kiss me good night,

                 and I felt loved.

 

When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I saw tears come from your eyes,

                  and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but itís all right to cry.

 

When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I saw that you cared

                   and I wanted to be everything I could be.

 

When you thought I wasnít looking,

         I looked . . .

                and wanted to say thanks

                       for all the things I saw when you thought I wasnít looking.
