SPOT

From the musical, “A Tribute To The Memory Of You”
by Denny Hamann

(Charlie discovers that dreaded spot which wasn’t there the day before and sings of his fears of what lies ahead.)

IS THIS NOT A SPOT, WHICH I SEE BEFORE ME?  OH NO!
THIS ISN’T HAPP’NING IT CAN’T BE TRUE.
IS THIS NOT A STAIN ON A LIFE THAT’S ENDING?
OH NO, I WON’T ACCEPT THIS, I’M SO CONFUSED.
I AM TWENTY-THREE.   THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING TO ME.
I’LL WASH THIS SPOT OUT OF MY LIFE.  IT’S JUST A DREAM.
GOD, HOW COULD YOU DARE?  TO TAKE MY LIFE THIS ISN’T FAIR.
I THINK YOU’VE PUNISHED ME ENOUGH, IT’S TOO EXTREME.
IF THIS IS A SPOT WHICH I SEE BEFORE ME,
THEN PLEASE, TAKE IT AWAY, AND LET ME BE.  I AM JUST A YOUNG MAN, MY LIFE BEGINNING. OH PLEASE, DO I DESERVE THIS, FOR BEING ME? OH, PROVE TO ME YOU’RE REAL, BY SHOWING ME HOW YOU CAN HEAL. JUST DO THIS FAVOR FOR ME NOW,  THEN I’LL BELIEVE.
GOD, IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, IF YOU’RE THERE, THEN HEAR MY CRY.
LET ME KEEP ON LIVING.  I AM SO AFRAID TO DIE.
DOES YOUR JESUS REALLY LOVE ME?  CAN HE SHOW HIS LOVE TO ME?
CAN HE MAKE THIS TINY ACORN GROW INTO A GIANT TREE?
IF YOUR JESUS IS MY SAVIOR.  IF HE’S CALLED THE GREAT I AM.
IF HE’S REALLY A GOOD SHEPHERD, WILL HE SAVE THIS LITTLE LAMB? IF THIS IS A SPOT WHICH I SEE BEFORE ME, THEN PLEASE,
TAKE IT AWAY, AND LET ME BE.  I AM JUST A YOUNG MAN,
MY LIFE BEGINNING.  OH PLEASE, DO I DESERVE THIS FOR BEING ME? FOR BEING ME.  FOR BEING ME.  FOR BEING ME.
