    How Wonderful to See

    It truly is an anomaly in a world such as ours these days to see a truly happy couple...divorce seems more common than having a dog. But to see an older couple holding hands...showering each other with kindness and affection just melts me. I believe it gives us hope that...

    My grandparents have been married

    for 55+ years and they still smile and laugh together every day. They still sleep next to each other every night and when I see them hold hands I know how much they still love each other. What happened to the days when you made a solemn, solid commitment to love and cherish...

    Seeing old people hold hands really warms my

    heart. It shows me that love may still exist, it shows me that people just don't give up on each other. I really hope I have something like that.

    Just saw an elderly man struggle across an icy

    road to buy his sick wife two bouquets of flowers. Even in a lot of pain, he just wished to make her smile. Wish to have such a connection one day! Until then, continuing to cherish those I love through good times and bad. The poet, Hafiz, wrote (very loosely transliterated...

    They Make Me Believe That Love Still Exists

    I love looking at very old people holding hands or staring  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...

    Many, many years ago,

    we were walking along the banks of the Rhine at Speyer with our son, certainly less than four years old at the time. On seeing an old couple he came out with the cute quote "Look! Someone else's grandma and grandad"

    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...

    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...

    The Hands Of Time

    Two nights ago I went to my great uncle's funeral visitation. There was no weeping, anguish, or loneliness. Instead, there were sad smiles and joyful tears mingled on faces as people reverantly and softly spoke of the family's " Love Story". You see, less than 48 hours before, my...

    Makes me wonder how long they've been married,

    if they ever spilt during their marriage, and to put it simply it makes me wonder what their story is. I'd love to just sit down one day and talk to a couple about what they've been through together. Seeing older couples gives me hope.

    Years ago I remember seeing this old couple

    every day walking along the cliffs in Yarmouth, England. Everyday I'd see them as I walked my dog. Always holding hands or arm in arm. They'd be out there for hours. I always wondered what they'd be talking about. Maybe they'd known each other for years. Maybe they hadn't.

    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!!
