Ikaw ay kabigha-bighani


Explanation:
This is very much related to the Tagalog equivalent for "I admire you" (Ikaw ay kahanga-hanga), only that this has a more romantic connotation.

The word-per-word translation is as such:

Ikaw = "You"
ay = "are"
kabigha-bighani = "awe-inspiring" or "captivating".

Although unfortunately there is no real direct equivalent for the word "wonderful" in Tagalog, the word "kabigha-bighani" or awe-inspiring carries the same meaning and provides the same romantic effect.

Hope this helps!
