sweet old things

This morning on my way to work I saw an old couple walking towards downtown, the same route as me. I see them most days – about three mornings a week. They look to be in their late 70s, he is often carrying her bag for her and they’re always holding hands. As I walked by them this morning I heard that they were speaking Russian and it made me wonder about how long they’ve been here, what it was like where they used to live and how they came over. I hope they’re happy – it’s very heartwarming to see people that age who presumably have been together for most of their lives and still care so much for each other.
