"The beginning of eternity
The end of time and space
The beginning of every end,
And the end of every place."

"I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball."

Hmm. . . I have to think longer bout those two.
This is translated, but it should be recognizable.

(quote)
I am the path to the city of woe,
I am the way to eternal sorrow,
I am the portal to a forgotten people.

Justice moved by sublime creator,
Divine Omnipotence formed me,
with the highest wisdom and primaeval love.

Only those elements time cannot wear were made before me
and for all eternity, I stand.
(quote)

I left off the last sentance. . .

That is a very clever riddle. Time Honored Riddles is a subject that includes a clue within the title. The title was meant to have an ambiguous implication (riddles about the subject of time).

The answer to #1 is the letter E. (The end of time & space.)
The answer to #2 is, tomorrow.

Two bodys have I, though both joined in one, the stiller I stand the faster I run.

What am I?
