How very true. In our religion though we are taught that we are born according to out deeds good/bad from previous life. All in all whatever it may be towards the end we all have to die what God has planned.
I do love the simplicity of this poem, and the truth it holds. It is beautifully worded and I do think your title really says it all. This is just life, you have to just try and make the most o it when you have it.
