it was a quiet, simple act

a couple walking in my direction


 the man bent down

to tie his companion’s shoe

and in this tiny moment

revealed his heart. 


“let me tie your shoes. i don’t want you tripping and falling for someone else.”

  1. I’ve had someone tie my shoelaces but it was prompted, and so the person didn’t get full credit. 🙂 I would love to experience the unprompted version someday. I love this kind of gesture, and I’m glad you see something in it too. Thank you for sharing your observation!
