Please help! I am wanting to have "My Friend, My Love, My Life" inscribed in my fiancee's wedding ring in Irish and I have found multiple words for love and friend. I am wondering which to use for the meaning I want to convey. Can anyone help?

My Friend - Mo Fhear Páirte (Friend but as in "Male Part(ner)")
Friend translates as 'cara' but that is too 'weak' for what you want.
My Love - Mo ghrá
My Life - Mo Shaol/ Mo Bheatha
Both Saol and beatha translate as life, though saol more as "life, time, world" and beatha more as "life, soul, 'living-spirit'"

Hope it was help,
Colm.
