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)
