Contact with Life

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