Salt on Coffee (Love story po ito)

(copied from Chinggay's Scrapgirl)

He met her on a party. She was so outstanding, many guys chasing after her, while he so normal, nobody paid attention to him.

At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee with him, she wassurprised, but due to being polite, she promised. They sat in a nice coffeeshop, he was too nervous to say anything, she felt uncomfortable, shethought, please; let me go home.... suddenly he asked the waiter."Would you please give me some salt? I'd like to put it in my coffee."

Everybody stared at him, so strange! His face turned red, but still, he putthe salt in his coffee and drank it.

She asked him curiously; why you have this hobby? He replied: "when I was a little boy, I was living near the sea, I like playing in the sea, I could feel the taste of the sea, just like the taste of the salty coffee. Nowevery time I have the salty coffee, I always think of my childhood, think of my hometown, I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who are still living there". While saying that tears filled his eyes. She was deeplytouched.

That's his true feeling, from the bottom of his heart. A man who can tellout his homesickness, he must be a man who loves home, cares about home, has responsibility of home.

Then she also started to speak, spoke about her faraway hometown, herchildhood, her family. That was a really nice talk, also a beautifulbeginning of their story.

They continued to date. She found that actually he was a man who meets all her demands; he had tolerance, was kind hearted, warm, careful. He was such a good person but she almost missed him! Thanks to his salty coffee!

Then the story was just like every beautiful love story, the princessmarried to the prince, then they were living the happy life... And, everytime she made coffee for him, she put some salt in the coffee e, as she knew that's the way he liked it.

After 40 years, he passed away, left her a letter which said: "My dearest, please forgive me, forgive my whole life lie. This was the only lie I said to you---the salty coffee.

Remember the first time we dated? I was so nervous at that time, actually I wanted some sugar, but I said salt. It was hard for me to change so Ijust went ahead. I never thought that could be the start of ourcommunication! I tried to tell you the truth many times in my life, but IWas too afraid to do that, as I have promised not to lie to you foranything..

Now I'm dying, I'm afraid of nothing so I tell you the truth: I don't likethe salty coffee, what a strange bad taste.. But I have had the saltycoffee for my whole life! Since I knew you, I never feel sorry for anything I do for you. "Having you with me is my biggest happiness for my whole life. If I can live for the second time, still want to know you and have you forMy whole life, even though I have to drink the salty coffee again".

Her tears made the letter totally wet. Someday, someone asked her: what's The taste of salty coffee? It's sweet. She replied.

Love is not to forget but to forgive, not to see but to understand, not to hear but to listen, not to let go but to HOLD ON !!!!

Don't ever leave the one you love for the one you like, because the one youlike will leave you for the one they love...

>>> Totoo eto! Minsan mo lang kasi mahahanap ang taong mamahalin mo ng totoo... madami kang pwedeng magustuhan pero hinde mo naman mahal.
