When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my first painting on'the
refrigerator, and I wanted to paint another one.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat, and I thought
it was good to be kind to animals.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake just for
me, and I knew that little things are special things.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer, and I believed
there is a God to whom I too could always talk.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me good night, and I felt
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes, and I
learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared and I wanted to be
everything I could be.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked . . . and wanted to say thanks
for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.
