I look at the sky and I see you,
Among the darkness, black and shiny,
Among the stars, bright and dying,
Among the milky way, glistening and glowing,
I see you.
Where the laws of physics cease to exist,
You proved the existence of singularities;
Where nothing could escape from a black hole,
You proved it emits radiation;
Where the world was still debating on God,
You provided a scientific theory of creation.
You are not gone,
Just traveling through the spacetime,
To another dimension or another parallel world.
You are discovering new theories there I know,
Solving the improbable, one paradox after another.
I know you are still a fighter,
Like you fought ALS and defeated God,
Like you transformed applied mathematics and theoretical physics,
Like you explained how the Universe came into being.
I wish I could have met you, Dr. Stephen Hawking,
I wish you could have gone on in this world,
Making discoveries that would change our ideas and beliefs,
Inspiring generations to follow science and seek the truth.
My heart is heavy and the loss is immense,
I bid you Goodbye and wish you a merry interstellar journey to the other side.
But I can still see you,
Among the vastness, the darkness, and the brightness,
In the Universe above.
