This one is about: When You Thought I Wasn't Looking


When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
        By Mary Rita Korzan

When you thought I wasn't looking,
  You hung my first painting on the refrigerator
   And I wanted to paint another one.

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 alright 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 the things you did
When you thought I wasn't looking.
