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.

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 bake a birthday cake just for me ...
and I knew that little things
were special things.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I heard you say a prayer ...
and I believed there was a God
that I could talk to.

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 you smile ...
and it made me want to look
that pretty too.

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,
