When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking


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 immediately wanted to paint another one.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you say a prayer, and I knew there is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust in God.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick,
and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you give of your time and money to help people who had nothing
and I learned that those who have something should give to those who don’t.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it
and I learned we have to take care of what we are given.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw how you handled your responsibilities,
even when you didn’t feel good
and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up.


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 that I could be.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I learned most of life’s lessons that
I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I looked at you and wanted to say, “Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking.”
