When You Thought I Wasn't Listening

When you thought I wasn't listening
I heard you telling Dad what great daughter I am
And I knew I was appreciated

When you thought I wasn't lisenting
I heard you cry
And I learnt that it was okay to miss someone

When you thought I wasn't looking
I saw you struggle to pay the bills
And I learnt that sacrifices are a part of daily life

When you thought I wasn't listening
I heard you pray to G-d
And I learnt that I am never alone

When you thought I wasn't listening
I heard you defend me
And I knew i was protected

When you thought I wasn't looking
I saw you fall
And I realized nobody will ever be perfect

When you thought I wasn't listening
I heard you say "I love you"
And I knew that every person deserves to be cared about

When you thought I wasn't listening
I heard you speak
And I relized what a great person raised me

When you thought I wasn't looking
I saw you smile
And I knew expressions could be read

When you thought I wasn't listening
I heard you sing the 'Hatikva' *
And I learnt that an anthem is similar to a prayer

When you thought I wasn't listening
I listened
And I realize now how lucky I am to have heard

*Hatikva- The 'Haitkva' is the Israeli anthem. You can google it to see the words in english.
