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.”

– Likkutei Sippurim,p. 30
