I just want to say, "I Love You..."                 

 

 Ich liebe Dich = I love you = Je t'aime = Minamahal kita = ....

2003 (!)   
                                                                         Liebessprüche!

 dedicated to my beloved wife Lilian! "Magpakailanman, Mahal!"  -  Gens una sumus ... !                                                         

 

        I love, therefore I am - Ich liebe, also bin ich!                                                                     

               

Nichts verbindet alle Menschen mehr durch Zeit und Raum, alle Völker, alle Jahrhunderte, als diese drei kleinen Worte ... liest man sie in vielen Sprachen, kann man dann noch für irgendeinen Krieg sein?!
