Blessing Kiss

My dad used to say the blessing that began, May the good Lord bless you and keep you... and he'd end with a kiss on the forehead.

I reached for her lips.
She offered her forehead.
A blessing kiss
I settle into a hug
O thoughts
Don't haunt me
with projections,
doubts, and
Stay just long enough
To remind me I am alive
Then leave me to
Enjoy this wondrous moment
In peace
