Art “I♥Worf” by Niki Flow

“Tell the people you love, ‘I love you’ often because life is short.  But shout it at them in Klingon because life is also confusing and terrifying.”  -unknown Trekkie

Further clarification:

As there is no verb in Klingon that directly translates the general English verb love, one must find a more specific translation. What nuance of meaning is desired?

I do the opposite of hating or detesting you: qamuSHa’

I intensely like you: qaparHa’qu’

I completely or perfectly care about you: qaSaHchu’

You are my loved one: bangwI’ SoH

I experience romantic/aggressive feelings toward you: SoHvaD parmaq vISIQ

You’re wonderful: bIDun

…The “correct” translation depends on the situation.
