More > songs." This book is a collection of haiku death songs and other poems, ancient and modern, that speak of the death experience. The book has been shared with the hundreds of critical and terminal cancer patients that I cared for over sixteen intense years of caregiving, an experience that changed my views of death dramatically. I no longer see death as a frightening or final experience. It is just stepping through a door from one world into the next. It includes selections by contemporary western Buddhists such as Woody Allen, Bob Dylan, Richard Bach and Timothy Leary. It is provocative, insightful, reassuring; not at all morbid or grim. It even brings some welcome levity in places. This book is great reading for those dealing with mortality issues.< Less
