Death is cruel
But life is crueler yet
As often we are reminded   
That soon we must pay this debt.

 Life is so short
And death …long
But we go whistling by
With this travel song.

We pay no mind
To what may lie ahead
But just dredge along
And nestle to our bed.

Forgetting all
And living to the last
For the unknown
Is forever vast.

Superb!! Wish I had written this myself. Life in the blink of her cosmic eye.

If one is born human and normal, one has these thoughts. It's the double-edged sword that comes with intelligence and imagination, at once our best tool for living on earth and at the same time an albatross about our necks if we dwell on our impending end. Your poem is excellent.
Best regards,
