Thank you for being you

(a nod to Shel Silverstein)

But, really, who else could you be?
You have to be you, as I have to be me.

If I tried to be you, I surely could not,
nor would I want to be.

For you are the very best you
as I am the very best me.

So you as you and me as me,
together let’s be we.*

(*Or, if you insist, “us,” my grammatically correct friends.)
