|Story that defines Love |
Like Before you read. This one deserves it
He met her at a party. She was so outstanding. There were many guys chasing after her while he was so normal. Nobody paid any attention to him.
At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee with him. She was surprised but she accepted the offer out of politeness. They sat in a nice coffee shop and he was too nervous to say anything.
She felt uncomfortable and
thought to herself, "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 for his strange request! His face turned red but still, he put the salt in his
coffee and drank it.
She asked him curiously, "Why do you add salt to your coffee?"
He replied, "When I was a little boy, I lived near the sea. I liked playing in the sea where I could
feel the taste of the sea which is just like the taste of the salty
coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, I always think of my childhood and my hometown. I miss my hometown so much. I miss my parents who are still
While saying that, tears filled his eyes. She was deeply touched.
That must have been his true feelings from the bottom of his
heart. A man who can express his homesickness must be a man who loves home, cares about
home and takes responsibility of his home...
Then she also started to talk about her faraway hometown, her childhood and her
family. That was a really nice talk and also a beautiful beginning to their
story. They continued to date. She found that he was actually a man who meets all her criteria of a good partner; he had tolerance, was kind hearted, warm and
careful. He was such a good person but she almost missed him! Luckily, his salty coffee brought them together! The story
became like every other beautiful love story where the princess married the prince and they lived a happy life together... 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 and left her a letter which said, "My dearest, please forgive me,
forgive my whole life's lie. This was the only lie I said to you - the salty coffee. Remember the first
time we dated? I was so nervous that I actually wanted some sugar but I said salt. It was hard for me to change what I said so I just went ahead. I never thought that
could be the start of our communication! 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 about anything...
Now I'm dying and I'm no longer afraid of
anything so I wish to tell you the truth. I don't like the strange bad taste of salty coffee... But I have
had salty coffee for my whole life! Since I knew you, I never felt sorry for anything I had ever done for
you. Having you with me is my biggest happiness throughout my whole life. If I can live for the second time, I would still want to know you and be with you for my whole life even though I would 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?"
She replied, "It's sweet."
Love is not to forget but to forgive, not to see but understand, not to hear but to listen, not to let go but HOLD ON!!!!

|The whispers of the mirror Written By: Me|
Once in a while we feel so hurt, so alone, so lost….Sometimes we feel that no hope is left. When we feel like this all that we want is to just be alone. We close the door and turn off the lights and sometimes look at the mirror…. We look at the mirror and wonder what happened? We wonder why we feel this way. In life good decisions come from experience and experience comes from bad decisions. As we make mistakes we truly understand how with love also comes hate, how with tears also comes cheers, how with hope also comes misery, how with silence also comes noise, and how with love sometimes comes light or heartbreak.
As I close the door and turn off the lights, nothing but wonders come to mind. As I sit, i wonder, what if the mirror could speak to us and if it could what would it say? Once in a while when were happy or sad we look at the mirror, sometimes the mirror sees tears other times it sees cheers. As I close my eyes and wonder, I heard a silent whisper.. What could it be, could it be the whispers of the mirror.
The mirror says, I am nothing special, and I can’t talk, the whispers that your hearing is your heart speaking, and since your heart can’t look at you and I can, i came to tell you that you should not be sad for something that was not worth your tears. The whispers of the mirror used to be so silent but now with every passing moment, there becoming louder and louder... The mirror whispers again, this time it tells me that love is like the wind, you can feel it but you can’t see it…. The whispers come and go. Again I hear the whispers of the mirror, this time it tells me that only love can change even the worst of people, only love can make us feel hope, only love can stop and has stopped so many tears.
The whispers of the mirror come and go…. Sometimes they are so silent, other times they can be clearly heard. The whispers always tells me that each heart sings a song, sometimes that song touches others, other times it hurts others, other times it takes away hope.
The mirror whispers, don’t look in the mirror and cry, instead close your eyes and try to smile. The mirror whispers sit in silence for we do not have to speak all the time, and those that truly love us can understand our hurt even if we don’t say a word. A whisper can be stronger then any storm, a whisper can remind us of what used to be, yet silence does not say anything yet it says it all.
The evil in life are the people who hate, yell at us, yet those who whisper and speak softly in an understanding voice truly may care for us. When the whispers of the mirror are loud they remind us of our terrible mistakes, they remind us of the evil or hate which fills our heart. When the whispers of the mirror are silent, they don’t say anything yet they let us decide if what we said or done is correct. In life people come and go, in our life we may meet thousands of people but only those who are truly special will understand us, only those who are special will never leave us, and then we will realize that those special people are here for some purpose. They can help you to understand some of those questions that we all have in life.
As the whispers of the mirror fade away, the final whisper silently tells me, don’t regret the past, don’t be afraid of the future, try to find hope in the present. Don’t regret your decisions instead learn from them….There is one thing thats worse then learning from experience is not learning from experience at all, what hurts us can make us stronger, what makes us happy can make us sad, what we have now, may be gone in a second, but if we have hope we can learn, love, laugh, and try to overcome every sadness. There is no such thing as no hope, no dreams, for every time our heart beats, our life continues, and even if there is no hope today, someday there will be.
