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!

By Joanna Fuchs

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.

Turquoise and tan sky with get well poem: May you be well.

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.

Get well messages need not always rhyme. Here's a get well poem in free verse with an uplifting get well message. It's perfect for accompanying a get well gift.

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.

Bad Bug

Making you feel queasy?

You'll be your very best!

Behind You

filled with a kaleidoscope of blessings.
