Mother and Son

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you hang my first painting 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 is a God I could always talk to.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me goodnight,
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 wanted to say thanks for all the things
I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.


A Mother and Son
There's a very special bond between and a mother and her son,
A closeness which grows deeper through the years
It's marked by tender moments, crazy antics, quiet talks,
And strengthened as they share their hopes and fears.
It forms and it develops very early on in life,
When he's unsure, but she says, "Yes, you can!
The bond remains unbroken growing ever stronger still,
Until her little boy becomes a man
Then as they both grow older, little things begin to change
And she learns she can rely upon her son
Life completes its circle, though at times to her it's strange,
For in her heart he's still her "little one"
