Be Careful What You wish For

Be careful what you wish for
Be cautious of when you ask for something
Weigh in your mind the hurt, the pain, the tears you’re summoning
Especially the tears you’re summoning
Those personal raindrops leaving mounds of tissues
Monuments to those feelings
Those memories
Those times
Those things that make your heart vulnerable
Vulnerable enough to tear
And hurt
Even if only ever so slightly
Be careful heart carrier
That you protect your precious cargo
Because you really only get one.
