Death Divides a Life
By Murray Dunlap

A red light killed me
An old Murray
A life divided
A new Murray has amnesia
An old life forgotten
But a new Murray writes a book
Marries a priest
Moves often, moves on
But a new home is found
A new life
With a refined wife
An old Murray had plans
A new Murray starts over
Reinvents himself
In spectacular fashion
The death of Murray
An insurmountable obstacle
The birth of a new Murray
Peace, at last
