(Boku wa) sabishii kara, kimi ni aitai.


Explanation:
Literally, (Because I am) lonely,
I want to meet/see you. The use
of the personal pronouns "boku" is
colloquial first person reference used by males, but is implied here--actual utterance is not required; "kimi" means "you", but has overtones of male/female
intimacy. Hope this is helpful! haslov

kimi ga koishikute aitai


Explanation:
Be careful when using such western phrases with the Japanese people. They tend to be uncomfortable with such open expressions of affection.
