New Poem: To a Girlfriend 1

A greeting card poem suitable for a boyfriend to give to a girlfriend is a dangerous thing.  I felt that I must tread with exquisite care.  Say too much, and the girl might think the boy is ready for marriage.  Say too little, and the girl may think the boy is not committed enough.  I attempted to avoid any awkward or inflammatory outcomes by focusing on the desire of the boy to spend more time with his girl.  I would think a girl would like to hear that from her guy, while the guy risks little--either they get to spend more time together or they don't, but the desire as expressed should be welcome.
