A Poem for Dr. Hans

Dr. Hans Petermann

Such inspiration to many and he always believed in me
 A perfect holiday guest as anyone could ever hope to be

Inspite of his affliction he always worked hard every day.
A man with moral values and he always had a lot to say

Many said Dr. Hans was the most intelligent man they'd ever knew 
He was never afraid to speak his mind but that he knew too much too.

He was a service man stationed in Germany in nineteen sixty three 
He spoke several languages and repaired helicopters in the U.S. Army

He loved the Sciences and Physics was his favorite subject of matter in life
 He is survived by his brother and daughters not by his former late pilot and wife

She died before the professor and he loved and missed her and his mom too 
Her cooking he loved and always mentioned it during the Thanksgiving too

Such a pleasant friend to have and to know 
One you could always count on and to always go

So unbiased and unjudgemental his friendship was true 
He would lift your spirits even if you were blue

You could tell him anything and he would always understand 
Such wisdom and understanding I've not found in any other man

He was loved by many and will be missed by us all 
A pillar has departed, We now miss when he used to call

His light and his strength have gone to another dimension and space
One he was fully aware of in life on earth, the universe and in any case

Good bye to you Dr. Hans with love and peace 
Your daily walks to the post office will now cease

I will miss you the most during the holidays of course
 But I will think of you kindly without hesitate or remorse
