Engelbert Humperdinck Broadcasts Poem to Alzheimer’s Stricken Wife
Veteran balladeer Engelbert Humperdinck shared an emotional poem he wrote for his wife, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, on TV in the U.K. on Tuesday, June 27th. Engelbert revealed all about his wife Patricia’s memory loss battle during an appearance on Loose Women last week, and recorded a reading of a poem he had written for her that initially wasn’t broadcast.
The Release Me singer said, “Although I cannot love her as a lover, I gaze upon her beauty as she sleeps and wonder if she feels me by her side. I gently touch her shoulder, my silent thoughts whisper loving words in her ear. I pray that soon I will say them aloud and she will hear me, and I will see her smile as if to say, ‘You know I seem to have heard those words before’. Only then will I say with all my heart, welcome home, my love.”
He is hoping that his poem and his experiences will help other caregivers and raise funds for research into a cure.”Hopefully I can be a voice and be part of raising awareness and money for research,” he explained. “People in show business do that and I want to be one of them.”
Humperdinck has personally dedicated his new single “I Followed My Heart” to his wife Patricia. Listen to the beautiful new song below:

I’m so sadden to hear that Englebert Humperdink’s wife is battling such an awful stricken disease. It is very difficult to see you loved one go through this diaease with NO CURE. I have been a big fan of Englebert Humperdink since I was a little girl as my mom listened to his music all the time and took me and my 4 sisters to his concerts. My mother was also diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2002 and me and my 5 siblings took care of her as she declined in this awful disease . We would alway play his music and it would put a smile on her face as we would sing his songs to her. One of our favorites is Quando Quando she would smile and we could see the spaekle in her eyes hearing his music. My mom lost her battle to Alzheimer’s on November 28, 2016. Englebert Humperdink songs are a big part of my Family and will continue on. God Bless you and u your wife Patricia I will be praying for you and your family. I Love You Humpy…
