There once was a man named Tom

He didn’t know me at the time of the prom

But now he retired

And I’m feeling smothered

Even though, I love without qualm.

    As an introvert who needs her alone time to recharge, this is like my biggest nightmare, lol! Thank God I'm not married and don't plan to. Loved your Limerick!

  • Lol! When my father-in-law retired my mother-in-law went back to work. She couldn't handle an entire day without a break from him, though love him she most certainly did.

    Lol. Have you considered smothering him?
