It can be hard to know what to write in a get well card - should it be funny, touching or someone else’s words entirely? We’ve put together a selection of poems, quotes and messages so you’re no longer stuck for what to say when someone is sick.

Sending good, healthy vibes your way.
FUNNY GET WELL SOON MESSAGES
Folks who think laughter is the best medicine apparently have never had morphine. Be well.
I hope you recover soon because I don’t want to come to the hospital for a second time!
An apple a day will keep ANYONE away if thrown hard enough. Get well soon!
You’re clearly the most likable person around. Even the bacteria and viruses have fallen for your charms. Hope you make a speedy recovery!
Don’t think of it as a hospital stay. Think of it as a spa package that includes meals, regular health evaluations and an excuse to eat ice cream. (Miss you!)
Sorry you had to eat hospital food.
I can only be nice for so long – get better soon.
You’re such an attention seeker! Get well soon!

GET WELL SOON POEMS AND VERSES
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.
Change, move, dead clock, that this fresh day May break with dazzling light to these sick eyes.
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;
take good care of yourself,
and feel better.
We miss you
and want you back.
Get well soon.
Everything looks so bleak
Everything looks so bleak when you are sick
And everything looks so pale
But I know that this is a temporary phase And you will surely sail
Through this time and tide my dear
So forget all your stress and worry
And forget all your very fear
Just rest and things will be all fine
You are always in my prayers
And I know you will be alright
Get well soon!
