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

loved.

 

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.
