Norwegian translation:"Jeg tilhører min kjæreste og min kjæreste tilhører meg"
Explanation:
anebjordal's answer is a good one.. but if you're not happy and if you need the word 'kjæreste' in it, then this may be what you're looking for. The part of the translation that you offer is somewhat confusing. "Tilh" is most likely "tilhører" which means "belongs"...

Jeg tilhører min elskede, og min elskede tilhører mig.


Explanation:
I suspect this is from the Song of Solomon, chapter 6, verse 3. The above translation is from an old Norwegian Bible text. My modern Bible has a different translation. In addition, today "mig" is spelt "meg".
