Looking for love in 2409

From NPR:
"Shakespeare's sonnets have stayed with us for 400 years. But an old poem can make you wonder: Are there any words of love from our time that would last as long?

We want to hear your ideas for words of love that might endure for as long as a Shakespearean sonnet. So pick something — a poem, a passage from a novel, a scene from a movie, a snippet of a song or even a slogan off a T-shirt — and share it with us. Be specific and let us know why you chose what you did.

Remember, it has to have been produced in your lifetime. It has to be about love. And it has to be something that people might still perform or pontificate about 400 years from now — in the year 2409."

Uh, okay. But just who is judging this? Oh, wait. I forgot. NPR totally has a Love Time Machine.
