So close yet so far

There was a little clock that stopped clocking
Shaped as a small candle, delicate and soft
Who just wanted to flicker a gentle fire of its own
But it will forever burn from the marble it was sculptured in
Finely tuned so the hands ticked in perfect alignment
With the Earth, the moon and the stars
But with a shudder it gave its last tick
Hands were frozen in time
Until someone carefully disassembled
And placed a small battery
In the pretty little clock
That had once stopped clocking
