a million

He hugged me, a huge hug. A genuine hug. You know? The kind that made me feel a million tiny fluttery swoon-y butterflies that just burst from his being and landed into mine. I breathed him in. I ran my cheek across his hair. I clenched my eyes so tightly shut, hoping that the moment would never ever end. I gripped him with a tender strength that made him feel my love and my heart and my breath. I wanted that brief moment to hold a place in his heart so special and so beautiful that he could describe it to his own kids, a million years down the road. His eyes looked at mine and I knew he felt it too. Those eyes of his could speak a million words, without ever opening his mouth. That boy. My boy. My boy.....forever.
