    There's a commercial

    that many of you probably have seen. It has been shown for many years, usually at Christmas time. A young couple walking down a path in a snow covered park. They come across an elderly couple walking slowly in front of them, hand in hand. As the young couple pass the older...

    It just confirms my thoughts

    that two people can grow old together and still love each other!

    It's so nice to see an old married couple still

    being in love with each-other. It's so sweet how they smile at each-other while they look into their eyes, as if knowing exactly what the other is thinking about. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. And when they give each-other a kiss... It's just too beautiful. I've...

    Opposite my flat there is an old folks home.

    I walk past here several times a day to and from work. Earlier this week I saw a lady at the window doing the washing up, I took note of her surroundings and saw some beautiful hand made Christmas decorations. Her husband then came into the kitchen and wrapped his arms...

    The Couple My Sister And I Saw

    We were in the mall, she drags me along for her protection. I'm a good brother so I don't argue. We saw them when we got into the main all and right there standing at the fountain they were embracing and kissing. When they were done they walked away holding hands. The looks on...

    Today, I was walking in the rain

    and I saw this old guy, all by himself, walking with one of those walker things. He was carrying lots of bags full of empty cans and other stuff...and well, I asked him if he needed a hand, (we were walking up a sort of steep road), and he sort of yelled at me and told me he...

    Somehow this is one of the most beautiful

    My grandparents are 80 years old

    and they come together since they were 16. My grandfather died a few years. However, my grandmother always speaks as much of it. She speaks of him with these stars in their eyes. You know, when a boy and a girl start dating and they love to madness? This is exactly the same...

    I love seeing couples

    who have lasted trough ages. Sadly it has become quite rare to live alongside the same person for entire lifetime. But the sight of oldies holding hands is heartwarming. Gives hope.

    Seeing a old couple doing something

    as small as holding hands is so significant to me. It's a little spark of hope that relationships that last till your grown and old do exist. Not everyone seperates like the majority of people in my family. The act itself,holding hands,is a way of showing that you aren't ashamed...

    They Make Me Believe That Love Still Exists

    I love looking at very old people holding hands or staringĀ  at each other with tenderness. I want a love like this: a complicity that lasts over time. I think people overestimates the youthfulness' passion. Real love is when you want to care of someone for the rest of your life...

    It's sooo romantic. Seeing them holding each

    others hands, and then each other. Whether they've been together for 6 or 60 years. They've conquered everything that life has pushed their way.

    My parents. When my parents are out

    There is an old married couple on the end of our road, and they are the sweetest people ever. They smile at people all the time, and it's nice, because a stranger smiling at you can really make your day that little bit brighter. Plus, it makes me think: they've been together...

    I love seeing this. Couples are old.

    . And still going strong. It's rare, too, to see this. Most couples just walk side by side... Or usually the man behind the woman, but when you see them holding hands, it shows respect, love, and affection. I want this someday!!
