The 49 Get Well Poems to Help Them Feel Better

Sickness and injury are unfortunately a part of our lives.

Things can seem bleak during times of dire sickness, which is why it’s ever so important for our loved ones to be there for us.

If a friend or family member of yours is currently suffering and you want to do something for them, we have a suggestion for you. Why not share with them a thoughtful get well poem?

Get well poems are the perfect gesture to tell someone sick that you’re thinking about them and wish for them to soon see better days. This seemingly simple gesture goes a long way in making the recipient feel better. 

We’ve compiled for you 47 of the most beautiful and meaningful get well poems that you can use to cheer a sick person up. We have easy-going rhyming poems, funny poems to get them to laugh (laughter is the best medicine!) and short get well poems for when you don’t want things to get too emotional. If you are looking for something emotional, though, we have some hard-hitters and tearjerkers for you as well. 

These poems are perfect for sharing with a bedridden friend, family member, or him/her. Let’s start:

The Best Get Well Poems

1.) December, Fever

A tang approaches, like the smell of snow.
Illness like a color deepens—
pale gray, thick-in-a-cloak gray, secret coat silk,
and finally the weight of rough pelts heaped on the bed.

The last enchantment of the day is tearing pages out of a book.
The paper soft and thin, like falling asleep
(a hand backstage smoothing my hair:
the school friend, Lakamp, became an undertaker)

My baby laughs to rip the pages.
Stays by me, does this damage.
The tearing moves like voltage through my own hands.

Oh mother skimming fever

I need him to linger

are you still happening there, in your body?

I just want to lie at the edge of breaking.

Yes, I am still backstage, here in my body.
The baby pulls out another page—
leaving him would come this easily.

I will bind myself to the thinnest sounds,
the feather coming out of the pillow.

Please keep ripping up the words.
Please don’t need anything from me.

– Joy Katz

2.) See It Through

When you’re up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!

Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don’t let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you’re beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!

– Edgar Guest

3.) Magic Wand

I wish I had a magic wand
To make it go away;
I’d wave my scepter over you
Until you were okay.

I’d think good thoughts; I’d send you love;
I’d transmit healing vibes;
My wand and I would surely beat
Whatever the doc prescribes.

But there is no magic scepter, so
I cannot cast a spell;
Just know you’re often in my thoughts,
And I hope you’ll soon be well!

– Joanna Fuchs

4.) The Sick Doll

Oh! is there any cause to fear
That dol-ly will be very ill?
To cure my little dar-ling here,
Pray, doctor, use your utmost skill.

And dol-ly, if you would get well,
Hold out your arm, that Dr.
May feel your tiny pulse, and tell
What best will take the pain away.

And do not say: “I will not touch
That nasty physic, nor the pill.

If little dolls will eat too much,
They must not wonder if they’re ill.

If your mam-ma ate too much cake,
She would be very poor-ly too,
And nasty physic have to take;
And, little dol-ly, so must you.

– Unknown

5.) Untimely Acceptance

I was suff’ring from cold, her hand
which felt so soft was in my hand;
Her company was so pleasant:
‘God! Stop the time!’ was heart’s demand.

Time passed quickly as could be,
Looking at her face I didn’t feel;
She had to leave at eight O’clock,
This was the gash that could not heal.

Time did not stop, she pick’d her bag,
My feelings with thorny bands roped;
She kiss’d my lips; said, “Get well soon!”,
And left at eight, the time stopped.

– Nazim ZarSinner

6.) Little Boy Blue

Little Boy Blue,
please cover your nose.
You sneezed on Miss Muffet
and ruined her clothes.
You sprayed Mother Hubbard,
and now she is sick.
You put out the fire
on Jack’s candlestick.
Your sneeze is the reason
why Humpty fell down.
You drenched Yankee Doodle
when he came to town.
The blind mice are angry!
The sheep are upset!
From now on use tissues
so no one gets wet!

– Darren Sardelli

7.) Hang In There

Hello, my friend; You’re on my mind,
Because you’re somehow ailing,
But your response to any challenge
Has always been unfailing.

So I’m confident you’ll win again;
Hang in there, and you’ll see;
You’ll be back on top in no time,
Tackling life courageously.

– Joanna Fuchs

8.) Ode To The Hotel Near The Children’s Hospital

Praise the restless beds
Praise the beds that do not adjust
that won’t lift the head to feed
or lower for shots
or blood
or raise to watch the tinny TV
Praise the hotel TV that won’t quit
its murmur & holler
Praise the room service
that doesn’t exist
just the slow delivery to the front desk
of cooling pizzas
& brown bags leaky
greasy & clear
Praise the vending machines
Praise the change
Praise the hot water
& the heat
or the loud cool
that helps the helpless sleep.

Praise the front desk
who knows to wake
Rm 120 when the hospital rings
Praise the silent phone
Praise the dark drawn
by thick daytime curtains
after long nights of waiting,

Praise the waiting & then praise the nothing
that’s better than bad news
Praise the wakeup call
at 6 am
Praise the sleeping in
Praise the card hung on the door
like a whisper
lips pressed silent
Praise the stranger’s hands
that change the sweat of sheets
Praise the checking out

Praise the going home
to beds unmade
for days
Beds that won’t resurrect
or rise
that lie there like a child should
sleeping, tubeless

Praise this mess
that can be left

– Kevin Young

9.) A Wing And A Prayer

Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected.
Through prayers to God, we feel connected.

Peace is said to be offered on the wings of a dove.
Prayers can bring peace along with hope, faith, and love.

Wings of a jet plane provide a steady flight.
I pray you remain steady and strong through this fight.

Butterflies have wings to fly playfully free,
And free from this monster is what I pray you’ll soon be.

Birds spread their wings as they may leave their nest.
We’re spreading our prayers that you’ll always be blessed.

Go fight and win this battle you didn’t start.
On the wings of an angel and prayers from my heart.

– Michelle Butler

10.) Feel Better Soon

I miss him in the morning;
I miss him late at night.
Just thinking about you,
Is my truest delight.

I can not wait to see you;
Please come back home!
You always make happy;
I’m proud to call you my own!

– Elizabeth Obialor

11.) Get Well Soon

Thought I’d write a couple of lines
To try to make you smile,
Cos you’ve been off work poorly
For just a little while.

The transport gang are coping well
They seem to be ok,
There’s been no major cock ups
As they work from day to day.

Now Pete’s gone off to Turkey
But Karen’s in the frame,
So sorting all the runs out
Becomes a juggling game.

So concentrate on getting well
By improving your own health,
till once again you’re fighting fit
Back to your former self.

And one last thing to say to you
Till you’re better, stay away,
Cos when the cat has left the building
The mice are gonna play.

– Pauline Faller

12.) The Doctor’s Prescription

If to recuperate is your ambition,
Then you’ve got to stick with doctor’s prescription.

Don’t forget to get enough sleep and rest,
So you can go home looking your very best.

Always remember that health is wealth,
Abstain from work till all is well.

– Elizabeth Obialor

13.) May You Be Well

May you be well.
May you be cleansed and purified
of all that isn’t health.
May every cell in your body
wake up and fight.
May the powerful light of healing
move into every part of you.
May you return to being purely you.
May you be well.

– Joanna Fuchs

14.) Untitled

If knowing that someone really cares
Helps healing along its way
Then I hope you now feel better
And keep improving, day by day

– Jon Bratton

15.) Rehab

We wear harnesses like crossing guards.
In a pouch over the heart,
over stent and bypass, a black
box with leads pressed onto metal
nipples. We pedal and tread and row
while our signals are picked up
by antennas on the ceiling, X’s
like the eyes cartoonists give the dead.

Angels of telemetry with vials of nitro
watch over us. We beam to their monitors
now a barn dance, now a moonwalk.
They cuff us and pump and we keep on
so tomorrow will live off today. Nurse,
we won’t forget the animated
video of our cholesterol highway
where LDL, black-hatted scowling
donut holes on wheels, blocked traffic.

But with muscles like gutta-percha,
can we leave time’s gurney in the dust?
By now only the dead know more about
gravity than we do. In reply, a tape
of Little Richard or Jerry Lee comes on
and we’re singing, aloud or not, all
pale infarcted pedalers, rowers, treadmillers,
and our hearts are rising in the east.

– Thomas Reiter

16.) Covid And Chaos

Having nightmares, working from home?
Or being bolted inside four walls for days
Catch up on reading, fiction and writing
Pick your authors and gulp them down

Catch up on music lessons, instruments too
Grasp them now, be it spiritual or Carnatic
Engage with Yoga and exercise for energy
Repeat meditation and transcend mind

Listen to film songs of your choice
Tamil, Hindi, English or just Folk
Try with Karaoke and Smule
Or fiddle with Wynk and Gaana

Watch movies that are chartbusters
And other soaps that are hot
Children would love video games
Netflix, Prime Videos will serve the rest

Sleep long if you must; but get up early
Enjoy morning chill; gaze the Sunrise
For that on which the World counts much
This time too, is Sun – the savior!

Let house gardening inspire your wits
Pluck the flowers; and collect the vegetables
Service water filters; clean up OH tanks
And clear up the water lines and pipes

Wash car and the bike yourself
Clean up the halls and bedrooms
And dust the curtains clean and dry
Wash clothes; dry them and press at once

Tidy the home; only call up friends you like
Do up your albums that are hiding unseen
Share the pictures with dudes and family
Dispose things that are not needed

Try new recipes; and everyone take turns
Enjoy home cooked foods and dessert
Eat lunch and dinner with all of family
Engage with kids; give wings and flight

Spend time with your pets
Give them a bath or brushing
And let them wonder why?
Let fish tanks become a delight

Groom yourself and pamper to glory
Spruce up the wardrobe and chestnut
Let footwear rest and get a polish
Oil the body, wash the hair to shine
Listen to birds’ chirp and cocks crow
Appreciate crows caw; cuckoos koo
It means life is there for all to look up
For speaking and enacting the drama
Read the Gita, Bible or Quran
And give Pooja place a face lift too
Give deities the wash they appreciate
They always hold the key to peace

Send get well card to young and old;
Friends and family, near and far
A birthday card; an anniversary wish
A congratulatory message, pending

Remove the clutter; do away with waste
Discard unwanted things, shred papers old
Forget enmity; write your wills soon!
Reset and tweet your goals and dreams
Enjoy your success; shun all worry and cry
Don’t need catch up on neighbors for once
Let them have their space to themselves
Just as everyone should have their own!

– Mothiram Pushpala

17.) Heart Over Matter

When your heart suddenly feels
light, excited, at ease.
When you feel like your heart just knows what to do
and your worries are far from your mind as are you.

You know that your mind will start chasing,
racing to hold down your heart.
After all, it is there to protect it,
ever from breaking apart.

But in order to keep your heart happy,
like a child, you must soften your hold.
You must let it run free for a while,
follow and see what unfolds.

Your heart is stronger than what you would think
and recovers at much greater speed,
so please just try, every once in a while,
to give it the freedom it needs.

Believe in your heart and embrace it,
and give it all that you’ve got.
Because whether it turns for the best or the worse,
you’ll be happy more often than not.

– Din Kriegsman

18.) Get Well

I want you well and up again.
I don’t want you to be alone.
I want you feeling really great.
I want you back at home.

– Virginia Gelok

20.) Untitled

This little card is sent to say…
I hope you feel better day by day
So pop those pills and swig that tonic
and I am sure you soon will be supersonic

– MargMax

21.) When You’re Not Here

When you are ill,
our sun goes under a cloud.
Your presence in our lives
is such a bright joy
that everything seems in shadow
when you’re not here.
When you aren’t feeling well,
we feel the lack
of your glowing energy
and contagious vitality.
When you are sick
we feel incomplete,
like a jigsaw puzzle
with a missing piece;
Please rest,
take good care of yourself,
and feel better.
We miss you
and want you back.

Get well soon.

– Joanna Fuchs

22.) Between Walls

the back wings
of the

hospital where

will grow lie

in which shine
the broken

pieces of a green

– William Carlos Williams

23.) The Hands Of A Warrior

Purple veins strain against the skin.
Pale, translucent, paper thin.
Skinny fingers clawed in monstrous shapes,
Brown spots from years that she can’t erase.

Now wrinkled and fragile, weak and sore,
So many things she can’t do anymore.
Some days she feels she’s been betrayed
By the cruelty of her advancing age.

She rubs her hands to ease the ache
And recalls the life they helped to make.
She looks at them and feels the loss,
Living a life bears a very high cost.

These hands that held her children near,
That gently dried their salty tears.
Hands that held her husband’s tight,
That never let go against the fight.

Miraculous hands that protected and soothed.
Hands, they conveyed her every mood.
Hands so strong they could carry the weight,
That would never give up and never forsake.

Those hands that took little but always gave,
Hands that applauded each achievement made.
Those soft, sweet hands that gently cared,
For those sick or lost in dark despair.

Hands that fussed and fumbled that day
Her husband gave their daughter away.
Those hands holding tight as he slowly died,
Caressing his brow as she stood by his side.

Hands that rocked her grandson to sleep,
That gladly took over when others grew weak.
Hands that once held everyone that she loved,
And prayed for strength to our God above.

Hands that were always so willing to give,
Hands that reveal a life fully lived.
Small, feeble hands, now empty and cold,
These hands that each day will keep growing old.

These hands she now tends to hide away,
These hands that at times make her feel ashamed.
Grotesque and useless in her eyes,
They rest in her lap as she quietly cries.

But I see the hands of a hero so true,
A woman who survived what this life put her through.
A woman whose heart still shimmers like gold,
With the hands of a warrior who made her mark on this world.

– Patricia A. Fleming

24.) Get Well Soon

My dear friend, I hope you’ll get well soon
You may now sit tight and enjoy the moon
My dear friend, I hope you’ll get well soon
You may now sit tight and enjoy some tunes

One, two, three, you’re about to fly free
From the echoes of stress. Now have some tea,
Enjoy the sea. Enjoy your family
Sleep in your dreams like tweedle deedle dee

My dear friend, I hope you’ll get well soon
Enjoy with your kids some good cartoons
My dear friend, I hope you’ll get well soon
Next time, your strong body will be immune.

– Mark Anthony Bartolo

25.) Stop Stressing And Get Well Soon

Living on a Fastlane every day,
No time to rest, no time to play.
Hurry, chaos, lots of stress,
Tension leads to sleeplessness.

When will all these struggles end?
Who will all my cares attend?
You better slow down or you’ll drop.
Take the remote and press the STOP!

– Elizabeth Obialor

26.) The Flu

You have the flu.
You’re breathing glue
And feeling kind of hot.
Your fever’s high
And though you try
Your nose stays full of snot.
So drink some tea
And think of me.
As far as I can tell,
You’ll get no hug
Or see my mug
Until you’re feeling well.
Get well soon!

– Denise Rodgers

27.) Bad Bug

Has a bad bug gotten hold of you,
Making you feel queasy?
You’re energy’s low, you’re indisposed,
Being sick’s not easy!

Just take this opportunity
To recuperate and rest,
And then when you return to us
You’ll be your very best!

– Joanna Fuchs

28.) No Magic Wand, Just The Prayer Band

Magic wand, magic wand;
How I wish that you were here.
With just a wave and then a spell,
My friend will be feeling well.

But since I have no magic wand,
And don’t know how to cast a spell.
I will call the prayer band,
And soon, you will be feeling well.

– Elizabeth Obialor

29.) Station

Days you are sick, we get dressed slow,
find our hats, and ride the train.
We pass a junkyard and the bay,
then a dark tunnel, then a dark tunnel.

You lose your hat. I find it. The train
sighs open at Burlingame,
past dark tons of scrap and water.
I carry you down the black steps.

Burlingame is the size of joy:
a race past bakeries, gold rings
in open black cases. I don’t care
who sees my crooked smile

or what erases it, past the bakery,
when you tire. We ride the blades again
beside the crooked bay. You smile.
I hold you like a hole holds light.

We wear our hats and ride the knives.
They cannot fix you. They try and try.
Tunnel! Into the dark open we go.
Days you are sick, we get dressed slow.

– Maria Hummel

30.) In Bed All Day

You get to stay in bed all day.
You get to watch TV
Or lay around or read a book.
Your time is really free.

Forget your work, your empty desk
With files stacked to the ceiling
And loads of e-mails to be read.
We know how you are feeling.

Just settle back and rest a while.
We promise you no flack.
But when your rest is over, well,
We really need you back!

– Denise Rodgers

31.) Curing Nature

All illnesses
Get well soon
A leaf or a root
Raw or ripe a fruit
Let them cured
Live long creatures
Caring the nature

– Muhammad Safa Thajudeen

32.) Get Mended

Illness means something’s not working quite right,
So do what it takes to get mended.
When you are sick, it gives me quite a fright,
So please, let your illness be ended!

I care about you and miss you!

– Karl Fuchs

33.) Pain Ends

Breathe in the fresh air,
Put your mind at ease.
Let down your hair,
Let it flow in the breeze.

Let your eyes wander
To all the beauty to be seen.
If those toxic thoughts you still do ponder,
Then let out a scream.

Scream until the pain is gone,
Until you no longer feel afraid.
Open your eyes to a new dawn,
Let the darkness fade.

No longer compare yourself
Or your flaws to others’ perfections.
Take the negativity off the shelf.
Focus on your direction.

Pick the sadness up off the floor,
Sweep it into the wind.
Close the door on self-hatred.
Never let it back in.

For the lies it would often tell you,
You will no longer agree.
Happiness and love are what you should hold onto.
They are whom you should give the key.

Pay no attention to the toxic thoughts,
Listen to those who adore everything you are.
Overthinking was what you once were taught,
But now those thoughts you put in a jar.

Focus on your goals,
Never lose your fight.
It’s time to open new scrolls.
Everything will be all right.

– Katy A. Brown

34.) The Acts Of Youth

And with great fear I inhabit the middle of the night
What wrecks of the mind await me, what drugs
to dull the senses, what little I have left,
what more can be taken away?

The fear of travelling, of the future without hope
or buoy. I must get away from this place and see
that there is no fear without me: that it is within
unless it be some sudden act or calamity

to land me in the hospital, a total wreck, without
memory again; or worse still, behind bars. If
I could just get out of the country. Some place
where one can eat the lotus in peace.

For in this country it is terror, poverty awaits; or
am I a marked man, my life to be a lesson
or experience to those young who would trod
the same path, without God

unless he be one of justice, to wreak vengeance
on the acts committed while young under un-
due influence or circumstance. Oh I have
always seen my life as drama, patterned

after those who met with disaster or doom.
Is my mind being taken away me.
I have been over the abyss before. What
is that ringing in my ears that tells me

all is nigh, is naught but the roaring of the winter wind.
Woe to those homeless who are out on this night.
Woe to those crimes committed from which we
can walk away unharmed.

So I turn on the light
And smoke rings rise in the air.
Do not think of the future; there is none.
But the formula all great art is made of.

Pain and suffering. Give me the strength
to bear it, to enter those places where the
great animals are caged. And we can live
at peace by their side. A bride to the burden

that no god imposes but knows we have the means
to sustain its force unto the end of our days.
For that is what we are made for; for that
we are created. Until the dark hours are done.

And we rise again in the dawn.
Infinite particles of the divine sun, now
worshipped in the pitches of the night.

– John Wieners

35.) Untitled

From being with you all day long
To getting you your favorite movies
From calling you every single night
To sharing some of our best memories
Anything I can do to make you feel better
Just ask, please don’t hesitate
No favor is too small or too big
After all, I am your best mate

Get well soon

– Unknown

36.) Get Well Quick

we know your not well
we pray to chruch bell
your our love shell
we know your sick

– Kurtis Scott

37.) The Evil Eyes Of Sickness

It’s a shame illness has finally cast its evil eyes on you,
I rain curses on all the germs that have allowed themselves to be used against my mom.

If there’s anything you need or if you ever feel alone,
Mum don’t forget to call my phone.
I pledge to be your guardian angel,
And stick with you till you get well.

– Unknown

38.) Untitled

I am sorry to hear
That you’re unwell my dear
So take your time and get your rest
In no time you’ll be back at your best
Sleep and relax until you are well
Soon we’ll be back at it Giving life hell

– Unknown

39.) The Wrong Doctor And The Right Friend

The doctor is wrong
And I am right
All you need
Is a hug so tight.

Lean on me
Stare at my eyes.
Soon, you will see…
The sickness is out of sight.

Get well soon.

– Elizabeth Obialor

40.) My Ailing Friend

Get well, get well, my ailing friend,
Whatever it is you’ve got;
I’m sad and blue, thinking of you,
And missing you a lot!

Rest in your bed, although you’re bored;
Be sure to sleep more than eight;
Get healed, get cured; come back to the world,
Where all your fans await!

– Joanna Fuchs

41.) Don’t Miss The Healing Summer Heat

I pray the healing summer heat
Comforts your bone;
Like juicy summer fruits,
A frosty ice cream cone.

Oh! the aroma of sizzling meat
Grilling on that barbecue,
The green lawns and summer flowers,
A gazillion fun things to do.

Get well soon, or…
You miss all the fun too…

– Unknown

42.) Untitled

This card, has health-giving powers
And I’ve made it, just for you
I certainly feel much better
And I hope that you do, too!

– Jon Bratton

43.) Just Know I Think Of You

Sending you this get well wish to let you know I think of you.
Not a day passes by that I do not pray for you.
And even though you are not perfect now,
I know that you will get well soon.

Just keep staying positive,
And when things get hard to bear,
I want you to know that I’ll be here to care.

– Unknown

44.) Common Blue

Their eggs are laid on lupine. Tiny jade
hairstreaks I could easily mistake for dew.
Too precious. Too incidental,
and besides that, blue, these trills that flounce
in my potato patch, drawn
from dryland origins to the domestic
stain of water from my hose.
What an old woman would study, I think
as you hand me the guidebook, distracted
by the replica of a parasol
growing out of a bleached cow pie.
The Siamese kitten with his butterfly eyes
comes running, his mouth full
of swallowtail, his breath smelling of borax
and sugar I have poured
over the ant hills in the garden.
He is young and intent on eating poison.
We bushwhack through Paradise,
what is there to say except to lament
the daily evidence of its passing.
How the common blues scatter from my shade.
And you, so fragile, so sick, so thin,
your diet restricted, keep pointing out
the bearded face of larkspur.
When the angels fell, a fifteenth-centruy bishop says,
there were 133, 306, 668 of them.
It takes us all afternoon to cross the field.
The body, it is so sad what happens to it.
If you fell, you would dry up instantly.
But these are not angel wings
who disguise themselves as leaf or shred of bark,
who are named after the stops
in meaning our language must make room for:
the comma whose wings look battered,
or the violet underside of the question mark.
To keep the mind from clenching, you say,
is the main thing. Even the most
beautiful days always seem to have death in them.
As Valentinus said; our fall into love and sleep.
You especially like the dark alpines
with their furred bodies and lack of marking.
And the sulphurs, yellowed scraps that fall
from a myth of origin that doesn’t include us.
When we find them, we will wonder
who is still alive. We speak of our souls with such
surface ease. But who will take such care for us?
You bend and bend to the scrappy blue sea,
your back turned to the moon fluttering above you.
I have been thinking so much of strength
this week, yours and mine, I mean,
the field of attention that can be strengthened.

– Melissa Kwasny

45.) We Hope That It’s Not Serious

We hope that it’s not serious.
We hope you’re not delirious.
We hope that you’re not feeling blue.
We hope it’s not a nasty flu.
We hope your butt’s not in a sling.
We wish you only best of things.
We send you all our get-well wishes
Packed along with love and kishes.

– Denise Rodgers

46.) Right Back In No Time

Hello dear, You’ve been in my mind,
Because you are currently ailing,
But your positive response to any challenge
Is so unfailing.

Thus, I am assured you’ll win any time;
Just hang in there and you will see;
That you will be right back on top of the game in no time.

– Unknown

47.) Climb Every Mountain

We all have a massive mountain to climb,
Especially those who’ve lost someone dear.
But climb that big mountain, we surely must,
If we are going to overcome fear.

Everyone’s got a big mountain to climb,
All those with an incurable illness.
Each step on that rocky, dangerous climb
Gets you nearer to an inner stillness.

Each of us have a big mountain to climb.
It might well be just a family rift,
But you must begin to climb that mountain
Because families are a God given gift.

Everyone’s got their own mountain to climb.
It could be something you just can’t accept,
But you must sort it out, make it good now,
Or you’ll never take that first tiny step.

We all have a great big mountain to climb.
We walk the same path that our fathers trod,
But when you’ve ascended and reached the top,
Then surely, you will be nearer to your God.

– Eric R. Harvey

48.) Laughter

A little bit of laughter,
A little bit of tears,
A little bit of happiness,
A little bit of fear.

They say laughter is the best medicine
And that it’s ok to shed a tear.
Happiness is a great feeling,
And fear makes you stronger.

Enjoy the laughter,
Release the tears,
Embrace the happiness,
Forget the fears.

Enjoy every moment you get,
And always remember…LAUGH!

– Katie Lou

49.) Mental Health

Staying healthy is a mental thing,
Thus, it’s up to you to cure you.
Thinking positive thoughts is the way to begin,
And smiling contributes a lot as I assure you.

Gloomies will try to win,
But a happy soul will always get well fast.
If right now is the time to begin,
Then soon your illness will be the thing of the past.

– Elizabeth Obialor


A health crisis, especially one that is severe, often leaves its victim feeling distraught and disheartened. Along with the body, the mind needs to recover too. Knowing that your loved ones have your back and that you can rely on them during troubling times is very reassuring and soothing. 

We have you enjoyed browsing through our collection of the top 49 Get Well poems and were able to find a poem to your liking. Write it down on a gift card and deliver it to the sick in person along with a nice gift, such as flowers. It can mean the world to them.
