Saying my goodbyes from afar

Greatest man I ever known..
I couldn't seem get along with for to long..
Told that's because we are so alike..
At first I use not like hearing that..
Now I'm proud to say I'm alot like him..
I only wish now we had gotten along alot better..
That ok though that's how it goes..
Now greatest man I ever known is forever gone..
Dad even though we never gotten along..
I want you to know..I alway's loved you..you will be greatly missed.
  
  This poem is for my late father Charles Ellis Strength (aka Slick)
