Levitating Lester

I am Levitating Lester.
I am lighter than a feather.
I’m as buoyant as a bubble.
I am weightless altogether.

If you carefully observe me
you will see me floating soon.
I will rise up from my mattress
like a helium balloon.

Yes, it happens every morning:
I awaken in my bed,
and I drift up to the ceiling
where I sometimes bump my head.

If I wake before the sunrise
it’s a miserable flight,
for I cannot see the ceiling
when there isn’t any light.

So I always keep a flashlight
on my bed where I recline,
so in case I wake in darkness
I can simply rise and shine.
