The Ballad Of Cyclone Jones
By
Joshua David Ling

Cyrus went out into the field where began her hurting.
‘Twas a bright summer morn, and she needed some good soul searching.
She thought of days gone by, of her and Connor hangin’ without a care.
She remembered the day he took her fishin’ when she finally did share
the story of Ezekiel, the angel who told them of her gift.
Connor didn’t believe her at first but a lightning bolt changed that real quick!
These memories, they tortured her but calmed at the same time.
To lose someone you love so much can make you lose your mind.

The pain never really goes away, but something takes it’s place.
It’s the solemn joy of knowing The Lord, God’s loving warm embrace.

As she walked further into the field Ezekiel did appear.
He walked beside her quietly but Cyrus did not fear.
He said,”Cyrus, the time’s upon us, when you must have to face
adversity and trouble, but you will live by God’s good grace.”
Cyrus talked and tried to explain the pain that made her weak,
but Zeke, he told her flat out that she had no ground to speak.
He said:”Christ endured the cross for you, so you will endure for Him.
Go up to the north creek bed, Cyrus; and see what’s lurking in that den.”

The pain never really goes away, but something takes it’s place.
It’s the solemn joy of knowing The Lord, God’s loving warm embrace.

Cyrus walked with Zeke and soon he disappeared.
But then she found that of which he spoke, and her sadness turned to fear.
