The Bride at the Door
Song of Solomon 5:5 I arose to my beloved; And my hands dripped with myrrh, and my fingers with liquid myrrh, On the handles of the bolt.

Here the Shulamite, is awakened and is looking out the doors for her beloved. The doors are currently open for her to seek Him out. Her hands dripping with myrrh are symbolic of the struggles in her heart to be transformed .
She is preparing herself for her "Beloved".

The King Blessing His Bride

Aaronic Blessing
Numbers 6:24-26 New International Version (NIV)
24 “The LORD bless you
and keep you;
25 the LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”

Song of Songs 2:9 New International Version (NIV)
9 My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
Look! There he stands behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
peering through the lattice.

 Here (King Jesus) looks at His Beloved Bride through the spaces between his fingers, representing the lattice. His face is shining on hers, an open portal to heaven, light streaming through His nail pierced hands, He kneels before her presenting this perfect gift... she marvels at her Beloved.
Unlike a curse... A Blessing cannot be reversed...
