My Only Wish - Poem by Simon Odhiambo

Is to pass away peacefully in my sleep
Just as my father did...
And not shouting for help like the folkes
He was carrying home that fateful night

Second wish is that should I need heart surgery
God will save the Doctor from heart attack
For people say, I have a golden heart
I dont think any Doctor has seen that
I fear dying by a dead doctor
