Got it through a forum

>>He met her on a party. She was so outstanding, many guys chasing after
>>her, while he was so normal, nobody paid attention to him.
>>At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee with him, she was
>>surprised, but due to being polite, she promised.
>>They sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything, she
>>felt uncomfortable, she thought, 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
>>put the 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 liked
>>playing in the sea, I could feel the taste of the sea , just like the
>>taste of the salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, 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 deeply touched. That's
>>his true feeling, from the bottom of his heart. A man who can tell out 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, her
>>childhood, her family. That was a really nice talk, also a beautiful
>>beginning 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 princess married to the prince, then they were living the
>>happy life...And, every time she made coffee for him, she put some salt in
>>the coffee, 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 I
>>just went ahead. I never thought that could be the start of our
>>I tried to tell you the truth many times in my life, but I was too afraid
>>to do that, as I have promised not to lie to you for anything..
>>Now I'm dying, I'm afraid of nothing so I tell you the truth: I don't like
>>the salty coffee, what a strange bad taste.. But I have had the salty
>>coffee 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 for my 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.
