Momma
by Kathleen Davis

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 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 and it's okay to cry

When you thought I wasn't looking
I looked at you and wanted to say
Thank you for all the things I saw
