I like it, too.  Here you go:  Ilar mbriathar mbla/ith rot char.

ilar = a multitude, many

mbriathar mbla/ith = of-words gentle [pronounce the 'm', not the 'b']

rot char = did-you love ('ro' is verbal particle that indicates completed
action; '-t' is the infixed object pronoun "you"; 'car' the verb itself)
