Tick - Tock

Slowly rotting it sits there still,
Staying put as if by will,
A face with no name is all it shows,
Never gets younger and never grows,
Frozen in time like nothing you’ve seen before,
Strolling through life with nothing to endure.

Every now and then is moves around,
And after a while it makes a eerie sound,
Its always there with no expression nor -
Emotion just does its job just like before.

It never sleeps but then is it ever awake?
Never slipping up or making a mistake,
The time just slowly slips away,
Done its job for yet another day,
Can you guess who I am?
Or do you not really give a damn?

Read on and find out more,
Find out what I am just to be sure,
It may take a minute or two,
Just to get my purpose across to you,

I’m always there but sometimes I’m not,
You may remember me but I’m sometimes forgot,
I have a face but it isn’t really to see,
I go on forever but you can replace me…
