How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

so here is away and so your is a my (23)

Now we make these impossibilities that are happening personal. Because our speaker is in love, he feels that his possessions are his love's possessions and, possibly, that his love is right there with him even when far away.

Quote #5

forever was never till now (27)

It seems like the force that makes the impossible happen in this poem is love. Maybe our speaker was a big skeptic, who thought he could never love someone forever. But then he met this person, and found that eternal love was possible because love made it possible.
