This world is not for aye, nor ‘tis not strange That even our loves should with our fortunes change.

As the wheel of fortune spins round, it is rare that we go round it together.
Fortune doesn’t seem to have one wheel but rather a wheel for everyone and two wheels rarely spin at the same speed or land in the same places at the same time, no matter how connected lovers might be, they will likely end up at opposite ends of their wheels at the same time.
Sometimes it seems the best you can do is wave at one another as you get rolled past.
But it might actually be most challenging when you’re not at the same point when both are low or both are high and can neither comfort nor celebrate appropriately.
Two wheels of fortune might be like the works of a clock, gears sliding past each other in constant motion but impossible to sync completely.
