Sincèrement vôtre


Explanation:
Now, sincèrement vôtre might sound a tad formal. You might prefer "À toi" if Paul is someone closer to you.

sincèrement/tienne pour toujours


Explanation:
Just to add to HLévesque, most of the time when writing to my friends or acquaintances in French I drop the 'yours' because without it you're not being too "romantic". However, if romance is your goal, "Tienne pour toujours" would do fine.

Le tienne


Explanation:
Le tienne is the litteral translation for yours. However, in this context you could also say something like, "ton ami toujours," "ton amour" (if it's a love letter), or "Je pense a toi." I wouldn't use the literal translation of Le tienne toujours. Good luck!
