i compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave

What did that mean, to kiss?
You put your face up like that to say goodnight and then his mother put her face down. That was to kiss. His mother put her lips to his cheek; her lips were soft and they wetted his cheek; and they made a tiny little noise: kiss.
Why did people do that with their two faces?

– James Joyce (A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man)
