loving touch or stroke
a gentle kiss to show you love sb
touch or stroke (sb/sth) lovingly
"he showered her with caresses"
"soft music was a fond caress"
"the caresses of the breeze played over his face"
"He caressed her face"
"They fondled in the back seat of the taxi"
The warm sun caressed our faces.
It caresses my ego today to think of men reading me half a century after I am gone.
