The Queen of My Self

I believe the greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be seen, heard, understood and touched by them.  The greatest gift I can give is to see, hear, understand and touch another person. When this is done, I feel contact has been made.

I want to love you without clutching, appreciate you without judging, join you without invading, invite you without demanding, leave you without guilt, criticize you without blaming, and help you without insulting.

If I can have the same from you, then we can truly meet and enrich each other.
