Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein Shabbat Chol Ha-Mo'ed Pesach: Shir Ha-Shirim What is the relationship between the dod and the ra'aya after the initial failure? The book answers that the dod did not forget his beloved, nor did he abandon her forever, nor did he even change her status in the wake of what had happened.
