I can think of two possible translations. 

 

The most likely (since you didn't give the context) is "You are the most important thing in the world to me.  Everything in my life is centered on you."  You often hear "It's all about you."  (You're egotistical, self-centered, etc.  Or it can also mean "Everything is being done for you.  Nobody and nothing is as important as you.) 

 

A second translation could be "I am wherever you are, wherever you go."  When someone says "John is about", he is saying that John's exact whereabouts are unknown but he's believed to be nearby, maybe outside, maybe down the street, etc.  "All about town" is "all around town, throughout the city, etc."
