I don’t belong to you.

I belong with you.

There’s a very large difference between the two lines.

We don’t belong to each other, but we belong with each other.

We travel together, side by side, neither in front nor behind.

There will be times when one or the other must step forward

And take the brunt of the world, sheltering the other.

But those times will shift and change as we take turns

Because together is more than apart

Even if there will be times when we must part for a moment

Only a moment in time, to gain rest and remember

Just how much better we are together.
