3/3/13 Edit: Chapter 8 has been fixed to include a previously, (and unintentionally) deleted scene.
Dying changes a person. And once the physical shock is gone, the pain subsumed within grit and duty, all that's left is who you decide to be. . . at your core. Shepard comes into to her new body, her new life, determined to be worthy of the chance she's been given. She finds a measure of redemption, and a challenge of surprising depth, in her greatest ally and friend. But it's not the asari, as she assumed it would be, that brings her the greatest joy. . .the sweetest torture. It is Garrus. It's always been Garrus. Struggling to find his way without her, and coming to terms with how much they seem to need each other. This story is theirs.
I include this portion of the Frost poem, the one from which I took the title, because it illustrates perfectly the way Garrus and Shepard are meant to guide one another through to the very end.
Two such as you with such a master speed
Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed
That life is only life forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar.
