How does one say in Indonesian: "You are the light of my eyes and the joy of my heart"; "I love you"; and "This is for you" (context: giving a present).
Also, if there perhaps exists a different poetic formula than the one in my first sentence, could someone please tell me what it is?
Thank you very much in advance!
Let me help you
You are the light of my eyes and the joy of my heart = Kamu adalah cahaya mataku dan kebahagiaan hatiku.
I love you = Aku cinta kamu
This is for you = ini buat kamu
well, regarding your second question, let me give you my suggestion. You can also say "Kamu adalah cahaya hatiku (meaning, you are the light of my heart)". But actually, some Indonesian girls don't really like sentences which are too poetic
But some girls like it though
seems like you're falling in love here...
