POEM: Eternal


He sent a song to this friend,
a book recommendation to that one.
To another he suggested a blend of tea,
and to another, a movie he’d cried over.
Little by little these seed packets
traveled out into his universe,
occasionally taking root in the soul
of a loved one, who years later
would put on an album on an autumn day
and be cheered by the music and
would remember him, and in this way,
he became eternal.
