For large orchestra. Freely after the poem by Atanasova about the circle of life.

First time I saw the water, I was a grain
First time I saw the earth, I was a human being First time I saw the sky, I was a boy
First time I sensed fear, I was a man
First time I heard a bird’s squeal, I was an old person When I felt pain, I was death
Then was life, I was everything

also available for wind band.
