Looking for a poem first read in Jr. hi. school in early 60's. It was about a woman reflecting back on three boys in her young life and how they kissed her; one boy kissed her soft and tender, one boy kissed her more forceful and aggressively, but the last boy never kissed her at all and that is the kiss she has always wondered about.

    Sounds like the lyrics to the song " Joey" written by Herb Wiener:

    Jimmy kissed me in the springtime
    Tommy kissed me in the fall
    But I remember only Joey
    Joey kissed me not at all

    Jimmy sang the sweetest love songs
    Tommy watched me openly
    But I remember only Joey
    Joey stole my heart from me

    Every now and then Joey wandered by
    How I wished that he would stay'
    Then I breathed a sigh as I wondered why
    He never ever looked my way

    Jimmy always sent me flowers
    Tommy often did the same
    But I remember only Joey
    Joey made me change my name
