Rakastan, I love
sinua, you

"Minä rakastan, sinä rakastat, hän rakastaa" are forms of the phrases "I love, you love, s/he loves" commonly found in grammars but sound stilted in speech.

Rakastan sinua


Explanation:
Rakastan, I love
sinua, you

"Minä rakastan, sinä rakastat, hän rakastaa" are forms of "I love, you love, s/he loves" commonly found in grammars. "Minä rakastan sinua, hän vihaa sinua" ("I love you, she hates you") contains the pronouns (minä, sinä) for contrast but the pronoun is usually omitted in simple phrases.
