The love story can be a beautiful thing, but it can also be messy.
In this episode, CBC’s Love Story series brings you the story of the song “I’ll See You Soon,” which was written by the singer, lyricist, and songwriter Gingerbread Man.
Here are the lyrics.
“I can see you soon / It’ll be nice to have you in my life.”
“I know you’re scared / I know you love me.”
“We’re so close / I don’t want to see you go.”
“You’re my baby, I love you.”
“Come on baby, let’s get married / Let’s make it happen.”
“It’s a long road, but I’ll see you shortly.”
“The song is about me and my journey.
I feel like it’s about me, but you know it’s not.
It’s about my love for you.”
The song is not the first time a song has inspired a love poem.
In the early 1900s, a young woman named Mary Ann White wrote a poem titled “Mary Ann” that was adapted for the stage.
The lyrics read: Mary Ann, I’ll See you soon.
I love You so much.
You’re so pretty.
“The poem was a hit.
But the lyrics weren’t as original as White’s, and many writers went back to the original version.
Here’s the lyrics to the song: I’ll meet you soon, I know that you’re waiting for me.
It’ll just be a short distance, I’ve never been closer.
I’m gonna see you again, and we’ll be married and I’ll love you forever.
But I know You’ll love me more.
I’ll just take you on a walk.
You can’t see me.
I know I’m scared.
I can’t imagine what you’re going through.
I wish I could, but we’ll never get to see each other again.
But then you’ll see me again.
I don,t know what’s going on.
And I’ll wait for you to see me, I can promise you.
You’ll never be forgotten, Mary Ann.
You know, you can’t be.
I’ve always known you’re special, I just never knew you were like this.
In 2013, the National Trust for Historic Preservation released a documentary on Gingerbread and the story she told about her experiences as a child. “
Maryann White” was a classic love poem and a favorite of many children, including Gingerbread, who sang it to her in a song titled “I Will See You soon” in the 1970s.
In 2013, the National Trust for Historic Preservation released a documentary on Gingerbread and the story she told about her experiences as a child.
It was a wonderful documentary, and I enjoyed it a lot.
I was especially impressed with the way Gingerbread describes the time she spent as a little girl growing up in the small town of Rockwell, Wisconsin.
Gingerbread was a child who had no friends, so she was alone in the house.
“Every day we were all alone together, in the kitchen, the basement,” she said in the documentary.
“It was not until I was about nine or ten that we started talking and it was then that I realized, ‘Wow, you’re not alone.'”
“I didn’t know what to expect,” Gingerbread said.
“But it was so exciting to hear that I was growing up with a person like me, a person that I could relate to.”
Gingerbread described how the song became a symbol for her and other children: “I was really nervous.
I never thought of it as being about me or being about anybody else, I didn’t even think it was supposed to be a love song.”
Gingerbartons story started in her childhood, when she and her family moved to Rockwell from the city of Waukesha.
“We lived in this big house, we had a big room and we had the whole yard.
It really was an empty space,” she explained.
“You could see the whole world through the window, but when I look back, it looks like nothing really existed.”
When she was a young girl, Gingerbread says, she had trouble fitting in with her classmates.
She was a tomboy, so her peers often teased her.
She had to hide her feelings, she said.
She knew she had a problem, but she didn’t want anybody to find out.
Gingerbarton says she never told anyone.
But one day, she and a group of friends were sitting around a table.
“And we all looked at each other and we all started laughing,” she recalled.
“At that point, it hit me.”
She said she started to cry and felt like she had no choice but to say something.
“That’s when I realized I had to tell somebody,” Gingerbarts mother said.
Gingerbrooks mother, Dorothy, says that the moment of realization was when Gingerbart’s mother asked her to
