I chased my dreams until I caught them.
I chased my thoughts until I stopped thinking.
And I chased my heart until I found you.

I Wrote This for You and Only You is the third book in the I Wrote This for You series and is yet another poetry collection with prose, poetry and photography.

Even if you write down everything that’s ever crossed your heart, there will still come a day when none of your words can explain how you feel.

I really liked reading I Wrote This for You so I was really excited to start I Wrote This for You and Only You, but I wasn’t that blown away by this collection. I think that I Wrote This for You was better than this one because there weren’t that many poems that I could relate to or I thought were beautiful.
