Need a poem about missing the one you love

I'm going to be moving away for uni soon and wanted to find a poem for my girlfriend to say how much I'll miss her. I had the title of Whitman's "A woman waits for me" in my head, but on reading it it's all about sex and the tone is wrong for what I need.

I hope somebody can contribute poems with appropriate sentiments.
Thanks.

Hugh, uni is just a hop, skip and jump away from col. I've been there.

There we can share web addresses and irritate poets and generally have a great time.

Perhaps something by Herrick then.

"Oh You Are Coming"
by Sarah Teasdale

Oh you are coming, coming, coming,
How will hungry Time put by the hours till then? --
But why does it anger my heart to long so
For one man out of the world of men?

Oh I would live in myself only
And build my life lightly and still as a dream --
Are not my thoughts clearer than your thoughts
And colored like stones in a running stream?

Now the slow moon brightens in heaven,
The stars are ready, the night is here --
Oh why must I lose myself to love you,
My dear?

But Not To Me
by Sarah Teasdale

The April night is still and sweet
With flowers on every tree;
Peace comes to them on quiet feet,
But not to me.

My peace is hidden in his breast
Where I shall never be;
Love comes to-night to all the rest,
But not to me.

Distances

Living distances will call
insistently, like doves through morning mists,
to haunt earth's lovers whom they hold in thrall
turning the wakeful to somnambulists

The In-between reverberates, a sea
whose echoing immensity's a voice
half-heard, half-answered when, distracted, we
attempt to make necessity a choice

Distances define, as presences do
- we live with them and suffer them as much
as if they were a part of me and you,
shadowing gestures, miming every touch...
