When You Thought I Wasn't Looking...

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
You hung my first painting on the refrigerator
And I wanted to paint another.

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
You fed a stray cat
And I thought it was good to be kind to animals.

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
You baked a birthday cake just for me
And I knew that little things were special things.

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
You said a prayer
And I believed there was a God
that I could always talk to.

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
You kissed 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 that it's okay to cry.

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
You smiled
And it made me want to
look that pretty too.

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
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 those things you did
When you thought I wasn't looking.
