When You Thought I Wasn't Looking


By Mary Rita Schilke Korzan



	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 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 wanted to say
	thanks for all those things you did when you thought I wasn't
	looking.
