CENTRAL POINT AMERICAN
HE moat exquisite torture that twangs the heart
strings of man, is the feeling he will be forgotten.
Some by Nature’s mandate; some by their own fail
ings; and the many carrying the stamp of adverse circum-
All! All vill feel the sting that awaits at the
*ral 8 j e j ' ^he creators> *s well as those who merely
succeeded, must make the inevitable bow to the things that
were the motive power that urged them to give their best.
The successor bouyed up by the mirage o f great expecta
tions, reaches out to grasp the rainbow. No time o f incli
nation to give thought to the one he succeeds. If the one
who looks back could be stirred with a dream, the following
poem might cheer him:
Here is a toast that I want to drink to a fellow I’ll never
To the fellow who’s going to take my place when it’s time
fo r me to go.
I’ve wondered what kind o f a chap he’ll be and I’ve wished
1 could take his hand,
Just to whisper, "I wish you well, old man” in a way that
I’d like to give him the cheering word that I’ve longed at
times to hear;
I’d like to give him the warm handclasp when never a
friend comes near.
I’ve learned my knowledge by sheer hard work and I wish
I could pass it on
To the fellow who’ll come to take my place some day when
I am gone.
Will he see all the sad mistakes I’ve made, and not all the
Will he never guess of the tears they caused or the heart
aches which they cost?
Will he gaze through the failures and fruitless toil to the
And catch a glimpse of the real intent and the heart o f
the vanquished man?
I dare to hope he may pause some day as he toils as I have
And gain some strength for his weary task from the battles
which I have fought:
But I’ve only the task itself to leave with the cares for him
And never a cheering word may speak to the fellow who’ll
take my place.
Then, here’s to your health old chap, I drank as a bride
groom to his biide,
I leave an unfinished task for you, but God knows how
I've dreamed my dreams as all men do, but never a one
And my prayer to-day is that all the dreams may be realized
And we 11 meet some day in the great unknown— out in
the realm o f space,
You’ll know my clasp as I take your hand and gaze in your
Then all our failures will be success in the light o f the
So I’m drinking your health, old chap, who’ll take my place
when I am gone.
