THROUGH THE EYE’S OF A CHILD!

THROUGH THE EYE’S OF A CHILD

When you thought I wasn't looking,

I saw you hang my first picture on the refrigerator,
and I wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you feed a stray cat, and I thought
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 knew that little things are special things.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I heard you say a prayer,
and I believed there was a God that I
could always talk to.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I felt you kiss 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,
I saw that you cared and I wanted to be
everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I looked....and now I want to say thanks
for all the things I saw,
when you thought I wasn't looking. :) :) :)
Cheers Joe.

That's lovely Joe.

Hits home a bit today as it would have been my Mum's 95th birthday.

Thanks

Lovely sentiments in this poem, enjoyed it immensely :)
A few similarities to the "footsteps" poem!

Thanks Joe :)
