The Two Commentaries of Tanchum Yerushalmi- Text and translation
On my bed at nights I looked for the one my soul loves, I looked for him but could not find him.
[The meaning is]: “I could never find my lover when I looked [for him] while in the obscurity of exile and the veil of sin. Every time I started to look for him, to inquire, or to mention him I was beaten, humiliated and paid a price.”

I looked for him but could not find him.1
The guards who go round the city ran into me Did you see the one whom my soul loves?
