    I don't think it's possible to translate that.

    Why would you like to know? Can you try and rephrase that?

    Context bro.
    it's part of a winnie the pooh quote:

    “Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered.

    "Yes, Piglet?"

    "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."”

    Is it just me, or does that sound incredibly dirty?

    rephrase it? That's a pretty random thing to translate; it might not make sense in French

    J'ai voulu seulement d'etre sûr de toi/vous.

    But tbh I'm not sure it actually translates, as "sure of you" is one of those phrases which just isn't used in other languages.

    "Je voulais être sûr de toi/vous" doesn't make sense in French. There is "être sûr de soi" but that's being self-confident and has nothing to do with what the English would mean.

    Je voulais juste etre certain de toi? (que tu existes encore, que tu es la...)
    Je voulais juste faire sur que tu es la? (maybe just "de toi" might work here...)

    It's a pretty philosophical sentence and really doesn't make sense in English, to be fair. The context is strong in this one.
