When orchids bloom in the moonlight 
And lovers vow to be true
I still can dream in the moonlight 
Of one dear night that we knew

When orchids fade in the dawning 
They speak of tears and good-bye
 Though my dreams are shattered 
Like the petals scattered
 Still my love can never die.

 There is peace in the twilight 
When the day is through 
But the shadows that fall
Only seem to recall 
All my longing for you

 There is a dream in the moonbeams 
Upon the sea of blue
But the moonbeams that fall
Only seem to recall 
Love is all, love is you
