Seven years in this chair; seven years your partner
(meant to be)
Two years in this chair; notes switched clefts
(meant to be)
One year in that chair; new partner / old partner
(meant to be)
Five years in this chair; faithful to one another
just you and I
watch behind this stand
(meant to be)

Relationship (meant to be) tied by sixth & eighth notes ;
counting and hearing ; we’ve matured in a way
i’ve never with another ;
close with each other
unlike any other.

The author's comments:
I've been in Orchestra for seven years, played Violin for the first two, then switched to Viola. There have been only two Violas for the past five years; Dan and me. We definitely have a special relationship, separate from all others.
