When you thought I wasn't Looking - Poem

When you thought I wasn’t looking

 

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 that there is a God I could always
talk to,
and I learned to trust in Him.
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.
Looking
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.
Looking 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.”
I AM SENDING THIS TO  THE PEOPLE I KNOW
WHO DO SO MUCH FOR OTHERS,
BUT THINK THAT NO ONE EVER SEES.
LITTLE EYES SEE A LOT .
