I Know You

(True Colors)

Luis Jimenez

Deciduous like a buckeye-

time has only shown,

what your true colors are.

Moonlight has a way

of turning night to day,

gifting me the sight of real you.

Lies by omission

should have been a red flag-

Steadfast hearts,

turn the other cheek.

Promises you make,

have no meaning for me-

even time can never change

who you became.

Many seasons will pass,

grow as I watch close,

but don’t ever forget-

I know you.
