Once A King

I will remember you as you were.
Bright and bejeweled, not drab and degraded.
Who would have known you would come to be this?
You were a king, but now royalty is all you miss.
I hope one day I can help sew you a new tapestry –
one that can be more extravagant for your majesty.
One better than the one hanging upon those cold bricks –
the ones you lost and now are derelict.
They hold nothing – barren and grey.
I know they hope for you to return one day.
