"One of the most beautiful things I have ever read. Ever." - BT, Grammy Nominated Composer and Technologist
"This is me. This is you. This is us. This is every human being, past and present, old and young, of every ethnicity, race and faith. Our every complex human emotion translated into words. Someone knows and someone understands. This is the essence of what it truly means to be human." - Ethar El-Katatney, CNN African Journalist Of The Year, award-winning journalist, blogger and author.
"The magnificent beauty of I Wrote This For You is quite simply this: the book is elegantly incomplete without you. No one else in the world can read it the way you do. No one." - Matthew E. May, Author of The Elegant Solution, In Pursuit Of Elegance, The Shibumi Strategy
"I bought the 'I Wrote This For You' book in actual, real-life paperback, and it soothes my soul. Buy it if you can." - Laura Prudom, Associate Editor for AOL/HuffPo TV
You are holding in your hands what was promised to you years ago. I’m sorry it took so long. But life, as is so often the case, is life and we forget about the promises we’ve made.
You, however, are harder to forget.
I know the world is crazy. I know love is not always the way it’s meant to be. I know sometimes, things hurt. But I also know that we’ll get through this. That our hearts will arrive on the other side, in one piece. That everything is beautiful, if we give it the chance to be.
I’ve tried to write down what I saw and what you told me and I sincerely don’t think I missed anything. Let me know if I have.
I love you. I miss you.
