Sounds more "instrumental" to me - "comitative" means "in the company of", so unless you have a personalized love as in the Herbert poem, "Love bade me welcome,\ "But my heart drew back\ "Guilty of dust and sin ..." etc you would be using it as an instrumental. Ie, the 70s pop song: "killing me softly\ "with his love ..." But sounds good. Keep us informed!
