mors ut vivatur meretur, amorque meretur ut diu exspectetur.


Explanation:
Making sure I've understood the verses correctly po-angliski:
"Dying is worth living for,
and love is worth waiting for."

mors ut vivatur meretur
amorque meretur ut diu exspectetur.

The word order is highly malleable.

MERETUR: "is worth, deserves"
MORS: "death" (nominative case)
AMOR: "love, sex" (nominative case)
-QUE: "and"
UT: "(so) that"
VIVATUR: impersonal passive of "live" in subjunctive mood
DIU: "for a long time"
EXSPECTETUR: impersonal passive of "await, wait for" in the subjunctive mood
