No. Unfortunately you are going to have to reset it.

Do you have device's configuration backed up? I mean file generated by "/system backup save" command. If you do, ask Google for "mtpass", that will get the password from it.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.

if you have a backup file you can rescue password using online service http://www.mikrotikpasswordrecovery.com

otherwise, you have no chance.
