but good idea this'll be fun

oh goody-can't do these but still...
I was tall when young,
but short now old,
my youth was bright,
But my age is a shroud of darkness.
(very easy and the oldest one around but still...we needed to start somewhere.)

Until I am measured
I am not known,
Yet how you miss me
When I have flown.
do you want the answers in spoilers or do you want me to answer later?

A candle, and is the last one Time?

Yup well done!- I like the time on..simple yet effective.
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.
another of my favorites.

ok i think this one is pretty common but:
what is greater than god,
more evil than the devil,
the poor have me and
the rich want me
and, silver serpent, is that one tomorrow???? i dunno just a guess...

I'm not to good at riddles either but this is my favourite-
Only one colour, but not one size,
Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies,
Present in sun, but not in rain,
Doing no harm, and feeling no pain,

i think the answer is a shadow.

A young dreamer
Ok I've got one
I come in different shapes and sizes. Part of me are curves, others are straight. You can put me anywhere you like, but there is only one right place for me.
What am I?

Alive without breath,
As cold as death,
Clad in mail,
Drowns on dry land,
Thinks an island,
Is a mountain,
Thinks a fountain,
Is a puff of air.
Now this one IS easy-even I got it first time-and yes you were all right on my previous ones.WELL DONE!

That one's from the Hobbit isn't it. The answer is a fish.
