I think he learned something from Bane about the "whole giving people hope and then taking it away" punishment. He didn't want to give the people he cared about hope that he will survive when it's most likely that he won't.

I'm not satisfied with some parts of the ending but I'm glad that Bruce survived and finally got the chance to live a life free from anger and pain with someone.

But seriously, it most likely could have been an artistic choice, toying with the timeframe, he could have jumped earlier, etc...

Also, he is Batman.

A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
