Sometimes You hide so well
I fear ever finding You.

Sometimes this game of Yours
brings me to tears.

Sometimes I don’t even bother
to seek You out;

for better to abandon myself
than to have You do so to me.

Sometimes You let me find You
just before I give up,

so that the sweet taste of discovery
remains just long enough…

till the next game.

It is written, “You are a G‑D who hides.”

G‑D says, “I hide myself from You, but the purpose of My hiding is that you should come and search for Me.

“But instead of searching for Me, you go away and busy yourselves with other things.”

[from Likkutei Sippurim, p. 30]
