Perhaps...

Beidh do gháire, do dheora, agus do ghrá istigh i mo chroí go deo

This is assuming you're talking about one person. If you're talking about multiple people, it will be different.

Please wait for more input.

Braoin also offered the following elsewhere:

I mo chroí go deo atá do ghealgháirí is do dheora is do ghrá.


If we change them to the plural, you then have a choice of:

Beidh bhur ngáire agus bhur ndeora agus bhur ngrá istigh i mo chroí go deo

or

I mo chroí go deo atá bhur ngealgháirí is bhur ndeora is bhur ngrá.

Await further input ...

Redwolf's is the usual word order for a normal Irish sentence.

Braoin's is "fronted", that is, part of the sentence is brought forward to emphasise it.

I think the English is actually fronted as well.

OK so i like the sound and looks of this

Beidh bhur ngáire agus bhur ndeora agus bhur ngrá istigh i mo chroí go deo

Do the comma's need to be placed anywhere like they are with the English?

One other question - are there more proper places to "enter" after to break it apart?

Ex:
Forever in my heart
lies your laughter,
tears, and love

Again thank you for your time and knowledge, this means so much

You _can_ use English-like punctuation in Irish, especially for long lists, but the repetition of agus/is is more traditional.

It would break more naturally into four lines, I think:

Beidh bhur ngáire
agus bhur ndeora
agus bhur ngrá
istigh i mo chroí go deo


Still waiting for a third opinion on the content ...

1) If you're repeating "agus" as Breandán did, there's no need for commas

Beidh bhur ngáire agus bhur ndeora agus bhur ngrá istigh i mo chroí go deo

You can, by the way, shorten this slightly by changing "agus" to "is":

Beidh bhur ngáire is bhur ndeora is bhur ngrá istigh i mo chroí go deo

Or you can make it even shorter by setting it up as I did the singular version (that would require commas):

Beidh bhur ngáire, bhur ndeora, is bhur ngrá istigh i mo chroí go deo

2) If you're breaking up the lines, I'd do it as follows:

Beidh bhur ngáire
agus bhur ndeora
agus bhur ngrá
istigh i mo chroí go deo


Or...

Beidh bhur ngáire
is bhur ndeora
is bhur ngrá
istigh i mo chroí go deo


Or...

Beidh bhur ngáire,
bhur ndeora, is bhur ngrá
istigh i mo chroí go deo


Wait for more.
