Always getting closer,
But never close enough
And when the day is over
From a second away, to an entire day,
Catching me is more than tough

However hard you try, I reckon
You won't ever catch me
Nearing every passing second
Try as you might, we won't unite
The wait infinite, you'll never catch me

Who am I?

Are you:

Tomorrow

Reasoning:

Always getting closer,

Tomorrow is always getting closer

But never close enough

Often you are really looking forward to a tomorrow

And when the day is over
From a second away, to an entire day,

At 11:59.59 tomorrow is a second away but then at 12:00 it's a day away

Catching me is more than tough

You can never be in tomorrow

However hard you try, I reckon
You won't ever catch me

Same as last lines

Nearing every passing second

Tomorrow is always getting closer

Try as you might, we won't unite
The wait infinite, you'll never catch me

Again same reasoning you can never be in tomorrow
