As Danny has already pointed out, there are essentially three options here:
the English word "Love" in Tengwar letters (spelt either according to
English orthography or English pronunciation), the Quenya word _melme_
written in the normal Quenya mode, or Sindarin (Noldorin) _meleth_ written
in one of the various known Sindarin modes.
One suspects that the person presenting this request knows little about
either "Elvish" or Tengwar writing, and imagines that that there is just
one "Elvish" language and just one way of writing "Elvish" in Tengwar
letters. Things are not that simple in Tolkienland. Yet it will be possible
to provide a meaningful response and a suitable string of Tengwar, once the
person asking the question learns what the options really are. But this is
not the place to explain what Quenya, Sindarin, and indeed Tengwar are.
