I wanted to compare you to the most beautiful objects in the Universe. I wanted to let the world know how gorgeous and unique you were. And so, I started thinking…
I compared you to the stars and stopped immediately. Stars aren’t unique. There are billions and trillions of them. Then, I thought of comparing you to the galaxies. But again, those aren’t unique either. Finally, I decided to compare you to the most unique and beautiful creature we know; The Unicorn.
As I was in the middle of my poem, comparing you to the Unicorn, I realized… Unicorns don’t exist! They are fictional.
And so, I literally couldn’t find anything in the whole wide Universe that could possibly be compared to you.
Everything I could think of was either unique or beautiful. Not both!
Then, this very elementary thought came to my mind, cleared out the haze surrounding my expectations, and made me understand, ‘No matter what, there cannot be another you’.
And with that one thought, my entire world came to a halt. It was as if the planets had stopped rotating and revolving, the galaxies had stopped moving and the Universe had stopped expanding. In that fraction of a second, everything changed and I just sat there… blind to the fact that the Universe will never be the same again.
You will never be the same again. The way I look at you will never be the same again.
Until that moment, you were the best thing to happen to me. Beyond that fraction of a second, you became the best thing to have ever happened to the “Universe”.
You went from being unique and beautiful, to being the The Big Bang, The Big Crunch and ‘Everything in Between’.
