Poems by Amanda Bradley

Each Life Affects Another

We may not always realize
That every thing we do,
Affects not only our lives
But touches others, too!

For a little bit of thoughtfulness
That shows someone you care,
Creates a ray of sunshine
For both of you to share.

Yes, every time you offer
Someone a helping hand ...
Every time you show a friend
You care and understand ...

Every time you have
A kind and gentle word to give ...
You help someone find beauty
In this precious life we live.

For happiness brings happiness
And loving ways bring love;
And giving is the treasure
That contentment is made of.

- Amanda Bradley

“It only takes one smile to offer welcome...and blessed be the person who will share it.
It only takes one moment to be helpful...and blessed be the person who will spare it.
It only takes one joy to lift a spirit...and blessed be the person who will give it.
It only takes one life to make a difference...and blessed be the person who will live it.” - - Amanda Bradley

"Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!" - Amanda Bradley

Always Have a Dream

-amanda bradley-


Forget about the days

when its been cloudy,

but don’t forget your hours in the sun

Forget about the times

you’ve been defeated

but don’t forget the victories you’ve won

Forget about mistakes

that you can’t change now

but don’t forget the lessons

that you’ve learnt

Forget about misfortunes

you encountered

but don’t forget the times

your luck has turned

Forget about the days

when you’ve been lonely

but don’t forget

the friendly smiles you’ve seen

Forget about the plans

that didn’t seem

to work out right

but don’t forget

to always have a

dream.


-------------------------------------

Follow Your Dream

Follow your dream...take one step at a time
And don't settle for less, just continue to climb.
Follow your dream...if you stumble don't stop
And lose sight of your goal, press on to the top.
For only on top can we see the whole view
can we see what we've done and what we can do
can we then have the vision to seek something new...
Press on, and follow your dream.

~ Amanda Bradley ~

Peace

Peace will come when people live
In friendship, side by side,
And cherish understanding
More than hatred, greed and pride.

Peace will come when people see
All people as the same,
And no one has to live in fear,
In ignorance, or shame.

Peace will come when people
Who are needy can reach out
For shelter, food, or love,
And no has to do without.

Peace will come when people
Learn to listen and to care
About the rights and dignity
Of people everywhere.

Peace will come when love and trust
And kindness know rebirth,
And on that day all people
Will rejoice in peace on earth.

-Amanda Bradley-

Love Lives On

Author: ~ Amanda Bradley ~

Those we love are never really lost to us--
we feel them in so many special ways--
through friends they always cared about
and dreams they left behind,
in beauty that they added to our days...
in words of wisdom we still carry with us
and memories that never will be gone...
Those we love
are never really lost to us--
for everywhere their special love lives on.

Hello there! I know this is a very late response, but sadly I am not aware if there is one by Amanda Bradley. But what I know is there is a published book on poems by Helen Steiner Rice, which is a good one! God's blessings be yours! :)
