comma before 'to' [preposition]: as I have with you, to the point

Could somebody please tell me if i've correctly placed the following comma? Your help is appreciated.

I can say candidly that I have never been so desperately in love with someone as I have with you, to the point that my strong feelings of longing verged upon a form of grief!
  • My simple answer is: Yes. It is necessary because that second clause qualifies "been so desperately in love," not "you," which would otherwise be the case.
    Thank you both for your constructive response.

    e2efour, thanks for pointing out the 'verged' part. I will use one of your alternatives.
