The Bookmark

As I passed through British Columbia
The Yukon wild and free
I pondered and I pondered
A question was plaguing me

Where in the world could I get
A special bookmark for you, my friend
That announced the name of the place
That I was visiting in?

Alaska we finally entered
We reached our destination at last
I searched and I searched again
Before this part of the journey passed

And there it was, standing out
In a wild-life museum in AK
A bookmark that was perfect
That truly had something to say

Puffins are simply adorable
I knew you would love them so
And it would show you one place
On vacation that I would go

I made arrangements to meet you
The date was set for lunch
You would love this little bookmark
Of this I had a strong hunch

But alas, it wasn’t to happen
I forgot to take the bookmark along
My memory is really slipping
No more is it healthy and strong

What worries me the most, my friend
Is that I’m acting just like my mother
When we set a date twenty years from now
Do you think we will recognize each other?
