Get Well Poems

Why write or send funny get well poems? It's simple. Everyone likes a little attention when they're sick or laid up with surgery or medical treatment. Many people enjoy a little humor. I know I do! It helps to know that people care about you and are thinking of you.

Get Well Poem #1

The first of the poems on this page addresses the flu. It's good to make someone smile with a hot cup of tea and one of these funny poems.

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!

A Little Bit of Nonsense, by Denise Rodgers

Get Well Poem #2

Wheezy
You’re wheezy,
And sneezy,
And feeling kind of queasy.
Your head feels like an overstuffed balloon.

You’re tired,
Perspired,
And feel like you’ve expired.
But here’s a wish
Instead:
Please get well soon!

Get Well Poem #3

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.

Get Well Poem #4

Get Well Soon
We know that you’ve had surgery
in places not to mention,
And you’ve been gone for long enough
to gather our attention.

So you can see, we’ve signed this poem, 
and folded it to send,
With wishes for recovery, 
for you to heal and mend.

You might be kind of wondering 
why we would make this fuss.
The truth is that we miss you much 
and want you back with us!

Get Well Poem #5

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!
