Love
nalini
Latin translation:dabo tibi totum cor meum (pro tota vita mea/totam vitam meam)
Explanation:
Dear Nalini,

Dabo: I will give
Tibi: you (dative)
totum cor meum: my whole heart (acc)

Now, if you mean "during my whole life" you should say "totam vitam meam" (acc).
If you mean "in exchange of my whole life" it should be "pro tota vita mea" (abl).

Hope it helped, Flavio :)
