Musings of a Forgotten Deity

A deity meditates on their fading glory

I have lived forever,
Or so it seems to me,
In my little temple,
By the shining crystal sea.

Some come in celebration,
Some have come to sneer,
Some have run in terror,
I can be one to fear.

My power is enormous,
My mercy can be rare,
Given to the wise folk,
Calling me in prayer.

But my world is fading,
The magic in my heart
Feels like it may leave me,
I have played my part.

My legend may be ending,
And soon I might be gone,
But gods can live in stories,
That shall always linger on.
