Am I right?
Yes, you're right. This is a proverb (?, I don't know the correct word for "refrán"). Usually it is said without the article: "lo espero como agua de mayo", but I've seen it written in both ways. May water is good for agriculture, so it is said in the sense of waiting for something with a great desire.
