What Is It ?

What is it, that wakes with me,
And follows me through the day ?
No matter how hard I try,
I cannot get away.
Every step I try to take,
It gets beneath my feet.
It always beats me to the chair.
When I have a seat.
Its silence always puzzles me.
It never says a word.
No matter how close I listen,
Its movement can't be heard.
There are some moments though
It's somewhere out of sight,
But it always returns again,
When I get in the light.
It always runs before me,
But doesn't leave a track.
I can barely keep up with it,
When the sun is at my back.
At times it follows after,
At my self-same pace,
But that only happens,
When the sun is in my face.
It's purpose is beyond me.
I know not what it's worth,
But it's always true to me.
Its been with me since birth.
I guess there is a benefit,
That I can derive.
At least, when I see it there,
I know I'm still alive.
