What Approaches Constantly but Never Arrives?

“Tomorrow” is the answer to the puzzle “What is always coming but never comes.” This is due to the fact that “tomorrow” is always the day after the current day.

The common twist used in many traditional riddles makes them challenging to solve. An example might be, “Poor people have it. The wealthy require it. It kills you if you consume it. Describe it.

The response is “Nothing” I’m tall when I’m young and short when I’m old is another well-known conundrum. Why am I here? This riddle’s appropriate response is “A candle.” I also like the saying, “If I drink, I die.” I am alright if I eat. I, who am I? “Fire” is the only acceptable response.
