To express a feeling or desire, we should use possessive pronouns, so option D is correct.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

What will you say about- "He loves me." or "He loves my."

Here he is expressing his feeling, still object pronoun is used.

It also depends on the tone of the sentence. The above sentence uses a strong tone to express the feelings of the person, so the use of possessive pronoun is more appropriate than the object pronoun.
