Would someone be so kind as to translate the following into Irish for me?

"I Love You", and the word "Forever"

Also, the phrase: "Sound of the waves"

Thank you kindly for reading my post!

Amy, a cara

Word for word translations are not always easy in Irish. Additionallly, Irish is a poetic language and some would argue the culture itself is poetry driven. Having said that here's what I can provide:

Forever = Go deo

There are a number of ways to say "I love You" in Irish. What you are after is the concept of communicating to someone that you feel an emotion of love for them. I copied these from an earlier posting just to give you a few to work with. If you go to the "search" label in the margin of this page you can find literally dozens of ways to say what you want to say.

Táim i ngrá leat (Thawim in raw lat) 'I'm in love with you'

Táim splanctha i ndiaidh tú (Thawim splan-haw ina yeeig too) 'I'm head over ears in love with you'

Tá mo chroí agat (Thaw muh chree ah-gut) You have my heart
(Literally, my heart is upon you)

I can't do much for you with "Sound of the waves." You'll need someone far more accomplished than I for that one.

Le meas,
