SOMEONE NEW

Where did he [she] go?
The boy [girl] I was this morning?
Who never knew that birds could sing
   and skies could be so blue.

Where did she [he] come from?
She [He] wasn't here this morning.
She [He] chased away the other me
   and brought in someone new.

   How could that melancholy former me
   Slip away?
   I could have sworn that he [she]
   Was here to stay.

Where did he [she] go?
He [She] left without a warning.
But here's the thing
I'm really certain of:
That missing he [she]
Has left a brand new me,
A brand new boy [girl] in love.
