Creating this unusual Valentine’s gift in 2002 was easy while playing in my graphics program to create the design and then mounting it on a CD.
The text of the design is the song “the Rose”. The full lyrics are on the back of the CD.
- For version 1 I printed the heart on plain paper without background and then glued hearts from my heart punch around it.
- Version 2 has the design I created in the graphics program glued to the CD
- Version 3 is the same as version 2, but I glued pink bias tape around the outside of the CD.
The Song Lyrics – The Rose
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 it’s only seed.
It’s the heart, afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance.
It’s the dream, afraid of waking, that never takes a chance.
It’s the one who won’t be taken, who cannot seem to give.
And the soul, afraid of dyin’, 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 in the winter far beneath the bitter snows,
Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love, in the spring becomes The Rose.
Artist: Bette Midler
