Round me at twilight come stealing,
Shadows of days that are gone;
Dreams of the old days revealing,
Mem'ries of Love's golden dawn.
Dream of love, so true.
O'er the Sea of Memory
I'm drifting back to you.
Among the birds and bees
You left me alone.
But still you're my own!
In my beautiful Memories.
Sunlight may teach me forgetting,
Noonlight bring thoughts that are new;
Twilight brings sighs and regretting.
Moonlight means sweet dreams of you.
