Affection I believe. My cats do the same thing, in fact when I cradle my youngest one, he literally tries to pull my face down so he can slobber all over it while purring like a freaking engine.

When they just put their paw on you it's like holding hands with your spouse or significant other. If they are kind of pawing at you they usually want something--usually attention (or a snack).
For my dog it is:
wants to get under the covers or
wants attention, when I give him attention he then does the
"I need to go out" next to the door routine or acts goofy which means to me: "I want to go for a walk"
Your pet is loving you. Your pet is being affectionate to you. Your pet is talking to you....
