Roma sighs heavily and continues.
With my heart pounding so loudly I think it will
explode, I look directly at Roma and ask, "And
did that boy say to you one day, 'Do not bring me
an apple tomorrow. I am being sent to another camp'?"
For many moments, there is only silence. We cannot take our eyes from each other, and as the veils of time lift, we recognize the soul behind the eyes, the dear friend we once loved so much, whom we have never stopped loving and whom we have never stopped remembering.
Finally, I speak, "Look, Roma, I was separated from you once, and I don't ever want to be separated from you again. Now, I am free, and I want to be together with you forever. Dear, will you marry me?"
I see that same twinkle in her eye that I used to see as Roma
says, "Yes, I will marry you." and we embrace, the embrace
we longed to share for so many months, but the barbed wire came
Almost forty years have passed since that day when I found my Roma again. Destiny brought us together the first time during the war to show me a promise of hope, and now it had reunited us to fulfil that promise.

On Valentine's Day 1996, I bring Roma to the Oprah
Winfrey Show to honour her on national television.
I want to tell her in front of millions of people
what I feel in my heart every day.
