Means "I Love You."
One letter in I,
Four in Love,
and three in You.

Musiq made a song about it.
See sometimes words may get in the way
Of things that you really really mean to say
So I wanna out this time to make sure that how I really feel
Gets through to you
Cause listen
There aren’t many more ways and words that I can say
So I choose to tell you how I feel in a numerical way
Got so tired of trying to find the most complicated way
To say it to you so I simplified and broke it down
To 143 – and that means I love you

A numerical representation of the expression 'I love you' where each of the three numbers represents the amount of letters in each of the words.

Used by couples with pagers as a code to constantly remind one another that they still are affectionate. (More commonly used before the wide spread availability of text-messaging cell phones)
My girl sent 143 to my beeper a thousand times yesterday - she really loves me.
