Because she makes me laugh.
Because she'll take me in hand and help me do the stuff that's overwhelming me.
Because of the way she fits in my arms - the way her curves fit against mine.
Because, because... lots of becauses.
Because she is her. And yes, there are many people I care for. But she and I have this nebulous undefined thing that makes her the person I want in arm's reach right now.
And I must be patient. Because she will be here in a week and a half, to sit with me in the hospital. But I wish she were here now. I am feeling quite unreasonable about this.
