The dampening hope!

Musician in the Rain by Robert Doisneau 

the rain drops make music,
I stand still
for I no longer play!

Itched in the memories
the night I played last,
the night she deserted me!
How cruel,
I do not forget the symphony
the music our hearts made together!

But today,
I stand alone with my music dormant
A desperate hope dampening
each passing day-
'll she return?
'll she be my music again?
till then
I listen the drops dancing on the umbrella!

This poem is written for the prompt "Musician in the rain" by Magpie Tales.
