When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

From A 4th Course of Chicken Soup for the Soul

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 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 those things you did

When you thought I wasn’t looking.
