vIparHa'. I like it. It's one of the rare cases in Klingon where a noun
centered statement doesn't sound clumsy or weak. After all, loving somebody
is rather a state than an action (yes, I know, other people might interpret
it differently...). I believe you can find many different ways to say "I
love you" in any language.
