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 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 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 it's all right 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 I wanted to say thanks"
    For all those things you did
    When you thought I wasn't looking.
