What is the translation for this Greek inscription on my ring?

Is anyone familiar enough with (I'm guessing) Greek to translate this inscription which is engraved on a ring I have? The underlined portion of the phrase was worn away, so I could only guess as to what it originally said.

My (Greek) partner says that it translates as "I will love you forever".

Thanks, Chairboy and partner! Did I get the underlines portion right? I am hoping to duplicate the engraving on another ring, so I'd like to get it correctly.

The inscription probably reads: ΘΑ Σ' ΑΓΑΠΩ ΓΙΑ ΠΑΝΤΑ

Not quite, according to the other half - we downloaded your jpeg and have amended it accordingly (including sorting out the spaces between the words a little). You can find it here...

On preview seconding kittydelsol, that looks right to us.

Thanks again for your help with this, Chairboy and your partner, and to kittydelsol too.
