This Pink Saturday post is most important to me because on Thursday, the 14th marked the 18th anniversary of the passing of my father to stomach cancer.  He struggled and fought for a year, but unfortunately the cancer got him.  He is in a better place I know, but it does not lesson the pain I feel not having him in my life anymore.  Here is a little poem I wrote in memory of him.

Dad I Miss You

Hello there the angel of my nightmare
  the shadow in the background constantly haunting me

Sleep eludes me, hungry for acceptance and love
Frustration and anger stimulate my wakefulness

The voice inside my head screams continually you're not worthy

I miss you....Where are you...
The only man in my life who ever truly loved me
I miss you...Where are you...I need you...You left to soon

Perception hits me like a brick wall
The angel of my nightmare is no angel at all...but death

He stole you...He took you too soon
My heart does not heal

Dad I miss you...I miss you still!!

Now on to pink things.  Here are few items I want in my kitchen, even though they wouldn't go with the decor.

and now for the Pièce de résistance

My pink Fender Stratocaster!!!  I always dreamed of having one and I finally bought one.  Now my daughter wants to learns how to play electric guitar too.  She already plays the drum...I think we have a future band member in the midst..following in her Mama's footsteps.  Don't forget to visit our lovely hostess Beverly

Hello Lisa Kay - Happy Pink Saturday! I love the pinks! My dad passed away about the same time from Emphysema and four years later my mother to lung cancer. I certainly understand how you feel. There's not a day go by that I don't wish they were here - but, yes - there is a better place - where we can see them again.
I think this is my first visit! My daughter is musically talented and plays guitar and piano - she has a pink one! I'm a good observer :)
Hope you have a Delightsome day,
