This pretty much right here!

It's a staple of the Captain America comics that he visits his old vet buddies. Peggy is his old vet buddy here. She also means a whole lot more to him, but regardless, she's someone he went through the ringer with in WWII.

This isn't a romantic scene, this is a bittersweet scene. It continues the tragedy that was TFA, thats what Steve's story is a tragedy, just like Banner's there is no happy ending for him. He can't just blow up his suits and have a merry christmas with the love of his life. His girl has moved on without him, his best friend has moved on without him(in a bad way), and the world itself has moved on without him. But through it all he pushes forward, as a good man.
Yep, yep, yep! Perfectly put and really does emphasize the core of Steve Rogers' "a good man" and a real hero but a man out of his time and searching for a way to live in the new world.
