The Rose

Rose Soap

Some say love, it is a river,
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor,
that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love, it is a hunger
an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower,
and you, its only seed

Its the heart afraid of breaking,
that never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking,
that never takes the chance

Its the one who won't be taken,
the one who can't seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying,
that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong

Just remember that in the winter,
far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love
in the spring becomes the rose.


I fell in love with this song when I first heard Bette Midler sing, many many years ago. 

Happy Valentine's Day ! xoxo ...


  1. I saw this when you posted it on Bramble Berry's Facebook page, and I am still just as in awe of it as I was then! =)

    1. Thank you Anne-Marie! I was inspired after reading your posts on 'play dough' soap and started experimenting with various methods to get the right consistency. It took me more than 2 years to master this!! LOL!
