The tracks of my tears...

A woman awakes during the night, and her husband isn't in bed with her.

She goes downstairs to look for him and finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.

She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.

"What's the matter, dear?" she asks. "Why are you down here at this time of night?"

The husband looks up from his coffee, "Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating, and you were only 16?" he asks solemnly.

"Yes, I do," she replies.

"Do you remember when your father, the local policeman, caught us in the back seat of my car making love?"

"Yes, I remember," says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.

The husband continues, "Do you remember when he shoved his gun in my face and said, 'Either you marry my daughter, or I'll send you to prison for 20 years?'"

"Gosh yes, I remember that too," she replies softly.

He wipes another tear from his cheek and says, "I would have got out today."
